Friday, May 24, 2019 – Insilico Medicine, a biotech company developing the end-to-end drug discovery pipeline utilizing the next generation artificial intelligence, will present its latest results in modern and next-generation AI for drug discovery and productive longevity at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch’s 4th 2019 Innovative China Conference on May 27, in Shenzhen.
Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to transform the pharmaceutical industry, making the hunt for new pharmaceuticals quicker and more effective. With AI comes the potential to improve drug approval rates, reduce development costs, and help patients comply with their treatments.
At Insilico, AI has been used as a powerful tool to identify targets for drug development, and with the ability to simulate and accelerate research processes, artificial intelligence helps more drugs to be discovered and come to market quickly. The presentation will focus on the latest advances in artificial intelligence for discovery, development and real world evidence collection of drugs and geroprotectors.
“We are happy to present our latest research at the 2019 Innovative China Conference, which gathers the leading industry leaders. The topic of artificial intelligence for drug discovery is rapidly gaining popularity, and we are happy to be at the leading edge of this research and one of the innovation drivers in the area,” said Alex Zhavoronkov, Ph.D., Founder, and CEO of Insilico Medicine, Inc.
China is transitioning into a more consumption-driven, service-led economy, powered by dynamic companies focused on innovation. Bank of America Merrill Lynch’s 4th Innovative China Conference in Shenzhen, with over 100 leading China innovative companies participating, will give an insight into the future of life sciences industry in China. The conference is three full days of keynote presentations and thematic panel discussions with policy makers, thought leaders, industry experts, C-level corporate executives to present on innovative themes and other topical ideas.
Insilico Medicine is regularly publishing research papers in peer-reviewed journals. The company was first to apply the generative adversarial networks (GANs) to the generation of the new molecular structures with the specified parameters and published a seminal peer-reviewed paper submitted in June 2016. The concept was further extended and augmented with advanced memory and reinforcement learning. One of the latest papers published in the Journals of Gerontology demonstrated the application of the deep neural networks to assessing the biological age of the patients. The latest special issue in Molecular Pharmaceutics featured several research papers by Insilico Medicine. Insilico published an overview of its results in aging research including the development of AI aging biomarkers, target identification, cross-species comparison and geroprotector discovery in Aging Research Reviews, one of the highest-impact journals in the field.
