      AI For Drug Discovery: Hype Or Hope?

      AI brings hope for disrupting drug discovery. Also, it brings a lot of hype, as if no lessons were learnt from previous winters in both AI and computer-assisted drug discovery.  In this meeting, we will discuss these hopes and hypes.  The Old Pro is a suitable place for this discussion: it's near Stanford, which is producing a lot of AI research, sometimes contributing to the hype.  I blogged about a specific example here: “AI in drug discovery is overhyped: examples from AstraZeneca, Harvard, Stanford and Insilico Medicine ” https://medium.com/the-ai-lab/artificial-intelligence-in-drug-discovery-is-overhyped-examples-from-astrazeneca-harvard-315d69a7f863 (this post was covered by Pharma blogger Derek Lowe:  https://blogs.sciencemag.org/pipeline/archives/2018/01/10/objections-to-some-drug-discovery-aiand made the front page of Hacker News :https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=16079735)  We will also discuss practical solutions to this hype problem.  The event is following-up the Precision Medicine World Conference 2019, and it's possible to attend both. It's free and open to everyone.  Organizer: Mostapha Benhenda, PhD, founder of the online AI lab Startcrowd https://www.startcrowd.club
