4 Companies Using Deep Learning for Drug Discovery

In a recent article we talked about how “deep learning” is a way to analyze “big data” in order to find obscure relationships in massive data sets that help you learn things that would take years and years of research to discover. Take drug discovery as an example. As investors, we like to fast forward to the FDA approval process when in fact, many years of research are needed to identify a drug compound that might be effective in combating a disease prior to seeking FDA approval. In an attempt to dramatically shorten the drug discovery life cycle, some software startups are developing platforms that enable you to discover new drug compounds and predict their likely success, solely by applying proprietary “deep learning” algorithms to ginormous data-sets. Here are 4 startup companies using “deep learning” for virtual drug…
