A Cautionary Tale for AI in Small Molecule Drug Discovery

Despite the buzz around artificial intelligence (AI), most industry insiders know that the use of machine learning (ML) in drug discovery is nothing new. For more than a decade, researchers have used computational techniques for many purposes, such as finding hits, modelling drug-protein interactions, and predicting reaction rates.

Optibrium expands operations in North America

Optibrium, a developer of software and artificial intelligence (AI) solutions for drug discovery, has announced the opening of its US subsidiary, Optibrium Inc. Dr Tamsin Mansley has been promoted to president of the new subsidiary to lead its US-based team and business operations. The opening aims to strengthen the Company’s direct sales, and technical and application support for new and existing US customers, expanding the global presence and customer base of Optibrium’s StarDrop and Augmented Chemistry platforms.
