‘It will change everything’: DeepMind’s AI makes gigantic leap in solving protein structures

Image: National Cancer Institute An artificial intelligence (AI) network developed by Google AI offshoot DeepMind has made a gargantuan leap in solving one of biology’s grandest challenges — determining a protein’s 3D shape from its amino-acid sequence. DeepMind’s program, called AlphaFold, outperformed around 100 other teams in a biennial protein-structure prediction challenge called CASP, short … Continue reading ‘It will change everything’: DeepMind’s AI makes gigantic leap in solving protein structures
