Drug Design, Development and Repositioning with AI
Pharma companies are in constant need of novel technologies for drug design and development especially in the modern digital health era. To this end, AI, neural networks and machine learning will play a crucial role in the design and development of new drugs as well as drug repurposing/repositioning. As such, this new discipline holds promise and has slowly begun to revolutionize pharmaceutical industry, in concert with -omics technologies.
