#74 - AI Develops Vaccines

2019. Developed by Australian researchers at Flinders University, an AI program referred to as SAM (Search Algorithms for Ligands) was taught to understand which compounds are able to activate the human immune system, and which aren't. The AI then generated trillions of compounds, and selected top candidates from that pool, after which scientists tested their ability. The result was a vaccine against the flu which outperformed all other existing vaccines. This was the first vaccine fully developed by an AI. The AI can save millions of dollars in research and can cut development processes by decades.
