AI in Drug Discovery Conference 2020

AI in Drug Discovery Conference 2020

SMi Reports: Registration is open for SMi’s inaugural AI in Drug Discovery conference taking place in London in March 2020.

SMi is delighted to announce the highly anticipated AI in Drug Discovery conference which will commence on 16th-17th March in London. AI machine learning technologies have the potential to reduce drug discovery costs by an estimated US$70 billion over the next decade, and is therefore leading the way to shorter, cheaper and more successful research and development.

Unfortunately, there can be no AI revolution without first tackling data challenges, such as the lack of consistent and quality data. It is critical, therefore, for industry leaders to come together and discuss strategies to overcome this problem and further advance research in drug discovery.

This two-day agenda offers networking opportunities with VPs, heads, managers, directors and scientists within artificial intelligence, machine learning, drug discovery, R&D, medicinal chemistry, cheminformatics, molecular AI and other related industries.

Registration is live on the website and an early bird saving of £400 is available for bookings made before 29st November 2019:

Key topics will include:

• Case studies from industry leaders in pharmaceuticals and biotechnology who have incorporated AI into their work.
• How deep learning methods can be used for compound screening, de novo design, multiparameter optimization and more.
• Strategies for overcoming data-related challenges and data access.
• Unique approaches such as fragment-based and network-driven drug discovery.

Key speakers attending:


• Alexander Hillisch, Director, Medicinal Chemistry, Head of Computational Chemistry, Bayer

Featured speakers:

• Andrea Pierleoni, Head of Artificial Intelligence, Healx Limited
• Andreas Bender, Lecturer for Molecular Informatics, University of Cambridge
• Andrew Leach, Head of Chemistry Services, EMBL-EBI
• Christian Tyrchan, Teamleader Computational Chemistry, AstraZeneca Sweden
