AI being used to develop drugs even faster and cheaper

The use of artificial intelligence (AI) is making it possible to discover new drugs faster, cheaper and more efficiently.

Waterloo chemists have introduced AI to interpret the results acquired by the differential mobility spectrometry (DMS) technique to predict drug properties. This could reduce in principle the time between concept and coming to market of new drugs by years and decrease production costs by $100s of million.
