How can AI help uncover new treatments for Parkinsons disease?
It’s been 50 years since the last treatment for Parkinson’s disease has been developed - patients are waiting too long for better treatments. We believe the application of AI holds huge potential to accelerate work towards a research breakthrough in Parkinson’s.
We believe this is possible through combining the extensive knowledge of charities, such as The Cure Parkinson’s Trust, alongside our platform - a machine intelligence technology system built to mine new knowledge. In this video, Dr. Jackie Hunter explores how we can take a different approach to solve highly specific, complex research challenges and why the UK is a fantastic hub to do it.
Using AI in the journey to advance a cure for blindness
Last year we entered a partnership with Action Against AMD to find treatments and a potential cure for age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the leading cause of blindness in the UK, and most developed countries.
Through this collaboration, Action Against AMD were able to access our AI platform to review and understand scientific papers, clinical trial information, images, formulas, patents and additional data sets relating to AMD. Our AI was used to carry out complex reasoning to create a new understanding of the disease, learn, explore, create and translate what it learnt from this vast volume of information to pin-point important research areas, new ways of preventing AMD and potential treatments.
