Molecular dynamics, machine learning create ‘hyper-predictive’ computer models

Researchers from North Carolina State University have demonstrated that molecular dynamics simulations and machine learning techniques could be integrated to create more accurate computer prediction models. These “hyper-predictive” models could be used to quickly predict which new chemical compounds could be promising drug candidates. Drug development is a costly and time-consuming process. To narrow down the number of… Read More »

Computer accurately identifies and delineates breast cancers on digital tissue slides

A deep-learning computer network developed through research led by Case Western Reserve University was 100 percent accurate in determining whether invasive forms of breast cancer were present in whole biopsy slides. Looking closer, the network correctly made the same determination in each individual pixel of the slide 97 percent of the time, rendering near-exact delineations of the tumors.… Read More »
