【MIT-CHIEF Summit Dialogue】AI-Empowered Drug Discovery

MIT-CHIEF Summit Dialogue invites leading scientists and entrepreneurs to discuss the challenges, trends, and issues affecting technology.

About this event

Longtime consumption, high cost, and low rate of success have made drug discovery one of the most complicated technical fields at present. However, the continuous development of artificial intelligence(AI) technology has brought drug discovery into a new hopeful era. This revolutionary combination of AI and drug discovery has attracted significant attention, and a new peak has been brought due to its outstanding performance in the COVID-19 epidemic. The market is witnessing its rapid rise, as well as challenges that follow.

On September 15th, MIT-CHIEF sincerely invites Prof. Connor Coley from the Department of Chemical Engineering of MIT and Dr. Lipeng Lai, co-founder of XtalPi, to discuss the present and future of AI-empowered drug discovery.
