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 & computer-assisted drug discovery.
In this meeting, we will discuss these hopes & hypes.

The Juniper bar is a suitableplace for this discussion. Located near Penn Station,it's
easily accessible from New York, New Jersey & Connecticut, a vibrant area in Pharma & AI.

I blogged about specific examples of hype here:

AI in drug discovery is overhyped: examples from AstraZeneca, Harvard, Stanford & Insilico Medicine

(this post was covered by Pharma blogger Derek Lowe:

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

"Youdidn't need deep learning to generate new molecules"

We will also discuss practical solutions to this hype problem.

The meeting is free & open to everyone.

Organizer: Mostapha Benhenda, PhD, founder of the online AI lab Startcrowd
