Increasingly shaping our modern world, artificial intelligence, machine learning and deep learning are also revolutionizing innovations in the life sciences. Our teams and members are using these technologies in a variety of domains - such as text mining, structural modelling or biocuration - to provide researchers and clinicians with efficient and impactful solutions. Discover some applications that we enabled, including cancer diagnosis, identification of new therapeutic indications for a molecule, biodiversity protection, or advancing our open databases and software tools.
