Experimentation with new drugs

Machine learning has a very important utility with regards to the identification of new drugs, starting from their study of the composition up to predicting their effects.

The Royal Society, which is based in the United Kingdom, states that machine learning is an optimal solution in the production of drugs through biological methods. In this way, pharmaceutical companies are important helpers in the drug production process, especially, with regards to timing and lowering production costs.

In precision medicine, the MIT Clinical Machine Learning Group uses algorithms to identify the best ways to produce drugs and cures, mainly for diabetes.

Another example is given by the Hanover project by Microsoft, which uses ...
