Jackie Hunter, CEO BenevolentBio is giving a talk at Web Summit 2017 on how Artificial Intelligence is revolutionising the methods in drug development.


"If you come into my world, in biomedicine, everyday thousands of papers are uploaded in portal like PubMed, new genome sequences, new biomarkers, new clinical trial data, we are drowning in data [...] Artificial intelligence could be the solution for a broken drug discovery model."


In a world supported and sustained by new technology emerging daily, the BenevolentAI boss, Jackie Hunter, says the only way to break new ground in medicine is to dig out new drugs through AI. Web Summit is the fastest growing technology conference in the world.
