Artificial Intelligence (AI) can enhance scientists’ ability to make discoveries. Across the life sciences, AI algorithms are being developed and deployed to speed our path to better health. This special Radcliffe science event will focus on how AI can accelerate research and development in general and drug discovery in particular. The health AI experts Regina Barzilay and Casandra Mangroo will each speak about their innovative work and then join Radcliffe’s Alyssa Goodman in a conversation on AI’s promise—and potential pitfalls—as we look toward the future of human health.
