Protein research is immensely important to the study of medicine. Figuring out the structure of these massive molecules is very difficult and time consuming.
Biologists in Harvard Medical School have developed an AI that detects structural patterns in well-known proteins.
This new AI technology is said to be up to one-million times faster than conventional methods, which can help facilitate DNA and protein research. Not only does it reduce man-hours, but it has the potential to improve medicine and help discover new information.
Overall, the benefit of this new technology could be from reducing cost to pushing forward groundbreaking innovation.
Research facilities that are able to more quickly utilize this technology in a meaningful way will be ahead of the race by being the most efficient.
In the conversation of disruption vs. optimization, this technology certainly qualifies as more optimization than disruption, and will most likely benefit society as a whole while propelling a select research facilities to extreme success and recognition until others catch up
