Monday, 14. January 2019, Cambridge Brewing Company, AI For Drug Discovery: Hype Or Hope?

AI brings hope for disrupting drug discovery. Also, it brings a lot of hype, as if no lessons were learnt from previous winters in both AI and computer-assisted drug discovery. 
In this meeting, we will discuss these hopes and hypes. 

Cambridge Brewing Co. at Kendall Square is a particularly suitable place for this discussion: nearby institutions produce a lot of AI research, which sometimes contribute to the hype. 


I blogged about specific examples, coming from:




Harvard: 
“AI in drug discovery is overhyped: examples from AstraZeneca, Harvard, Stanford and Insilico Medicine ” 

(this post was covered by Boston blogger Derek Lowe:  ) 

MIT: 

'MIT paper in machine learning for drug discovery at ICML 2018: very incomplete'



We will also discuss concrete solutions to this hype problem. 


The meeting is free and open to everyone. 


Organizer: Mostapha Benhenda, PhD, blogger and data scientist, founder of Startcrowd, online AI lab
