Project description
The aim of this project is to develop machine learning methods that enable reviving drug development, which has currently been significantly slowed down due to a huge increase of development cost. We develop new methods, with which drug design can take into account both the enlarging measurement databases and expertise of the drug developers. The methods will be general-purpose, and will be taken into use widely in other fields as well, in the Finnish Center for Artificial Intelligence FCAI where the research will be carried out.
