Spoonful of Technology


We highlight four recent technological advances that will enhance the pharmaceutical industry’s ability to deliver value for patients. These examples are revolutionary technologies, from artificial intelligence solutions to supply chain lubricants.




GB SCIENCES' PLANT DISCOVERY PLATFORM

A drug discovery company called GB Sciences has built an AI platform that analyses the healing properties of plants from nine traditional medicine practices. The company has collaborated with ethnobotanists and data scientists to identify compounds in plants that have traditionally been used as treatments.



CHIEF.AI'S PAY-AS-YOU-GO PLATFORM

Machine learning platform, Chief.AI, in partnership with the Medicines Discovery Catapult, has launched a first-of-its-kind, no-code, pay-as-you-go artificial intelligence platform for drug discovery.
