[Artificial Intelligence (AI) + BioMed Roadshow] Displaying Cutting-edge Biotechnology of AI Technology Innovation Companies
On the afternoon of September 29, 2020, the “Artificial Intelligence (AI) + BioMed Roadshow” (hereinafter referred to as the "the Roadshow") of the 2020 China BioMed Innovation and Investment Conference (CBIIC) was successfully concluded. AI and early stage drug discovery projects are the highlight of the Roadshow, and it focused on organic combination of AI technology and biopharma innovation. Through active registration from roadshow companies and careful selection by the Expert Review Committee of CBIIC, 8 innovative cutting-edge AI projects were well presented, attracting a large number of scientists and investors audience from the healthcare industry home and abroad.
Mr. Jiang Hualiang, Academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences, 2015-2016 Annual Chairman of PhIRDA, Professor of Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica, Chinese Academy of Sciences made a keynote speech themed “AI and Federated Learning Empowers Drug Research and Discovery”. In his presentation, Academician Jiang Hualiang introduced the latest progress made in the field of new drug R&D using AI technologies, as well as the difficulties and challenges currently facing, and stated that drug Federated Learning could well solve data problem in R&D- high barriers, high costs and high confidentiality. Mr. Jiang Hualiang also introduced the scientific research progress in collaboration with the team of Huawei “EIHealth”. They jointly released a drug Federated Learning service based on ModelArts platform from Huawei cloud.
