Wednesday, March 13, 2019 - Insilico Medicine, a Rockville-based company developing the end-to-end drug discovery pipeline utilizing the next generation artificial intelligence, will present its latest results in modern and next-generation AI for Drug Discovery and productive longevity at the World AI Show in Nairobi, Kenya, March 21-22.
The increased availability of data and recent advancements in artificial intelligence present the unprecedented opportunities for healthcare, and major challenges for patients, developers, and providers. The novel deep learning and transfer learning techniques are turning personal data into medical data transforming simple facial pictures and videos into powerful sources of predictive analysis, but depriving patients of the access to their medical records.
The presentation will cover the latest advances in artificial intelligence and blockchain technologies that accelerate the biomedical research and enable patients to control and benefit from their medical data, that might serve as an incentive to undergo constant health monitoring.
"We are happy to present our latest research at the World AI Show, which gathers the leading longevity leaders. The topic of medical data application is rapidly gaining popularity, and we are happy to be at the leading edge of this research and one of the innovation drivers in the area", said Iraneus Ogu, Blockchain and Longevity Consultant at Insilico Medicine, Inc.
World AI Show is a thought-leadership-driven, business-focused, global series of events taking place in strategic locations across the world. The show is part of a world tour that is taking place in Nairobi, Dubai, Singapore, Mauritius, Riyadh and Mumbai this year. The conference connects top AI experts, enterprises, government representatives, data scientists, technology leaders, startups, investors, researchers, academicians, and global AI innovators.
Insilico Medicine is regularly publishing research papers in peer-reviewed journals. The company was first to apply the generative adversarial networks (GANs) to the generation of the new molecular structures with the specified parameters and published a seminal peer-reviewed paper submitted in June 2016. The concept was further extended and augmented with advanced memory and reinforcement learning. One of the latest papers published in the Journals of Gerontology demonstrated the application of the deep neural networks to assessing the biological age of the patients. The latest special issue in Molecular Pharmaceutics featured several research papers by Insilico Medicine. Insilico published an overview of its results in aging research including the development of AI aging biomarkers, target identification, cross-species comparison and geroprotector discovery in Aging Research Reviews, one of the highest-impact journals in the field.
