BenevolentAI at NeurIPS 2020: Machine Learning in Drug Discovery

BenevolentAI will be proudly sponsoring NeurIPS again this year. Here are the details of our activities during the week:

Expo day: 6th December

How we leverage machine learning and AI to develop life-changing medicines - a case study with COVID-19.

The model for drug discovery and development is failing patients. It is expensive and high risk, with long research and development cycles. In this talk, we will discuss the peculiarities of machine learning across drug discovery, from the processing of scientific literature, to knowledge completion, target identification to precision medicine, to chemistry optimisation, each leveraging domain expert knowledge and state-of-the-art research and we will conclude our talk with a real example which will showcase the application of our technology and scientific expertise to repurpose existing drugs, as a potential treatment for COVID-19.

Meetup: 8th December

Application of Machine Learning to Drug Discovery Meetup

Why is drug discovery so complex? How can ML help to solve these scientific challenges? What does an ML applied drug discovery model look like? What skills are useful to the industry? If you are asking yourself some of these questions, then this meetup is for you.
