150 Startups Using Artificial Intelligence in Drug Discovery

Some time ago, I wrote about how we're now in the long-tail of machine learning in drug discovery.

I noted that we're moving past generalist applications of AI such as IBM Watson's to more specific, purpose-built tools.

This got me thinking: What are all the startups applying artificial intelligence in drug discovery currently?

Accordingly, I did some research and developed the following list, which I have grouped roughly by research phase.

3 Ways Artificial Intelligence Is Transforming Healthcare (Part 1)

Healthcare is one of the oldest industries in the world, and it’s obviously not going anywhere anytime soon.

Although radiologists are known to work in a separate part of the hospital, Dr. Golby says, “We want to bring together the diagnostic imaging team with the surgeon or interventional radiologist and the pathologist.

While bringing together the radiologist to join the rest of the surgical and pathological teams, it’s important that AI-enabled tools also make their way into the room.

And, Dr. Golby says, “If we want the imaging to give us information that we presently get from tissue samples, then we’re going to have to be able to achieve very close registration so that the ground truth for any given pixel is known.”

By adding more data and weight to each pixel, doctors could understand how tumors grow and shrink, how the body is responding to treatment, and what the body is experiencing in other areas.

We’re now getting to the point where we can do a better job of assessing whether a cancer is going to progress rapidly or slowly and how that might change how patients will be treated based on an algorithm rather than clinical staging or the histopathologic grade—that’s going to be a huge advance.”

For patients that can’t move, speak, or interact and engage with their physician, relaying information quickly and accurately can be nearly impossible –

Dr. Hochberg adds, “By using a BCI and [AI], we can decode the neural activates associated with the intended movement of one’s hand, and we should be able to allow that person to communicate the same way as many people in this room have communicated at least five times over the course of the morning using a ubiquitous communication technology like a tablet computer or phone.”

Applications of Digital Pathology

The Inaugural Applications of Digital Pathology conference will review three main areas of implementation - in primary diagnosis in the U.S. and abroad, in telepathology and in combination with AI and machine learning tools.

with the influx of new technologies and the first FDA-approved platform, and the variety of hardware solutions and software tools is an indication that creativity and investment is transforming the pathology landscape.

intelligence regulation will require an evolving regulatory strategy that abandons traditional normative boundaries, and instead will require shared governmental and stakeholder involvement.

will attempt to shed light on challenges and opportunities of image search for retrieving useful information from large archives of histopathology images.

We will share our experience in utilizing digital tools and will demonstrate methods and applications of digital imaging along with augmented human intelligence to effectively improve the workflow in the practice of hematopathology.

it will impact most of its aspects - from sample collection to diagnosis.

to Chinese pathologists, patients and clinicians to offer guidance on diagnostic and prognostic findings to assist in therapeutic decision-making for international patients.

these implementations have been primarily point-to-point connections for the sharing of the images in isolation of pathology information or medical record information.

and clinical information still faces many challenges, particularly if you wish to scale this to international partners.

and highlight lessons learned along the way of planning such a network.

Biomedical Informatics, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center The use of telepathology for frozen sections (intraoperative consultations) has been increasing due to limited time and availability of pathologists, and the demand for increased access to pathology subspecialists in difficult cases.

frozen sections can be difficult to handle remotely due to time constraints and artifacts.
