Drug Discovery and Development in the Era of AI and Analytics

The life science sector has struggled for years with expensive, inefficient drug discovery and high failure rates in drug development. Now, new technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data analytics promise to revolutionise biopharma R&D with in-silico drug design, sophisticated analysis of highly complex data sets, and an accelerated path through the clinic and to market. But what is the reality on the ground behind the buzz? Just how remote is the R&D model promoted by AI evangelists, and what are the major hurdles that R&D teams and innovators still must overcome if that model is to become reality? A panel of biopharma R&D transformers discuss the potential of artificial intelligence and data-driven technologies to create a new digital R&D paradigm.

  • “Necessity is the mother of invention” – why is AI so valuable to R&D teams?
  • How successful has innovation in the R&D space been thus far?
  • Commercialising data-driven drug discovery and development technologies
