Drug Development on Fast Track with A.I. and Deep Learning

#artificialintelligence

HAIFA, ISRAEL (August 22, 2018) – Dr. Kira Radinsky and Shahar Harel of the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology Computer Science Department have developed a smart system for the development of new drugs. Founded on artificial intelligence and deep learning, the system is expected to dramatically shorten and reduce the costs of drug development. It will be presented this week during the KDD 2018 conference in London. Drug production is a costly and lengthy process. Costs of half a billion to 2.5 billion dollars per drug, over 10-15 years are common numbers in the world of pharmacology.


The Future Of AI In Post-Covid Healthcare

Kira Radinsky, co-founder and Chairman of Diagnostic Robotics, wants to make healthcare more affordable and accessible. The lessons learned from initial deployments of the startup's AI-based digital triage platform in Israel and the U.S. and the valuable experience gained during the Covid-19 pandemic, point to a future of better healthcare: Providing the right treatment at the right time in the most appropriate setting. At the Mayo Clinic, Diagnostic Robotics' triage platform suggests possible diagnoses and provides a risk score for each patient based on their answers to questions regarding their medical conditions. The Mayo Clinic's Dr. John Halamka calls it "Waze for healthcare," stressing its use as a navigation system, matching patients with the right healthcare resource at the hospital's emergency room or even before they arrive there. The State of Rhode Island has used Diagnostic Robotics' platform to help manage its response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Can artificial intelligence (AI) predict future events? Successful serial entrepreneur, award-winning inventor, scientist, and technology innovator Kira Radinsky, Ph.D., has an expert's point of view and first-hand experience to answer that question. She is a member of the United Nations Secretary-General's high-level panel on digital cooperation that is chaired by Melinda Gates, Co-Chair of The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and Jack Ma, the Executive Chairman of Alibaba Group. Radinsky is the Co-Founder, Chairwoman, and Chief Technology Officer of Diagnostic Robotics, a health care artificial intelligence (AI) system with predictive analytics, with locations in Tel-Aviv and New York City. In early November 2019, she successfully raised $24 million in Series A venture capital financing led by Accelmed Ventures with other investors for the two-year-old technology startup.
