      AI in Drug Discovery

      Kai-Fu Lee and Jordan Harbinger discuss how AI can help scientists discover new drugs and repurpose existing ones. With AI's ability to analyze pathogens and targets, scientists can invent 10 times as many drugs in a given period of time, reducing the cost of discovering a drug by 90 percent. This could lead to the treatment of many rare diseases and multiple treatments for common diseases based on genetic sequences, race, gender, or age.
