Ivan Griffin
COO & Co-Founder, BenevolentAI

Join Ivan Griffin, BenevolentAI’s COO and Co-Founder, for a webinar on using AI and machine learning to transform drug discovery.

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are rapidly reshaping the healthcare landscape. By tapping into these analytic tools, pharma can develop better targeted care solutions. With 9 out of 10 candidate therapies failing somewhere between phase I trials and regulatory approval, new drug development—which can cost nearly $2.6 billion according to some estimates—is ripe for disruption. AI and machine learning has the potential to help the industry develop more effective drugs quicker and at a lower cost.

Dr Ivan Griffin, COO & Co-Founder of BenevolentAI, will share his views on the industry and how it could develop.
