What if AI systems, specifically neural networks, could predict the design of novel molecules (i.e. medicines) capable of targeting and curing any disease?

Imagine leveraging cutting-edge artificial intelligence to accomplish with 50 people what the pharmaceutical industry can barely do with an army of 5,000.

AI is especially powerful in analyzing massive quantities of data to uncover patterns and insights that can save lives. … Every year, over 400,000 patients die prematurely in US hospitals as a result of heart attack or respiratory failure.
