Principled Engineering: AI and Drug Development

Sponsored by

This event is over.

Event Details:

The use of artificial intelligence in drug discovery, when coupled with new genetic insights and the increase of patient medical data of the last decade, has the potential to bring novel medicines to patients more efficiently and more predictably. Join us for a discussion of the promise and potential pitfalls of relying on AI in bringing life-saving drugs to market -- and an exploration of questions of justice and equity in drug research and access.

Our speakers will be Russ Altman, Stanford professor of bioengineering, genetics, medicine, and biomedical data science, in conversation with Kim Branson, global head of AI and machine learning at GSK. Jack Fuchs, MBA ’91, an adjunct lecturer who teaches “Principled Entrepreneurial Decisions” at Stanford School of Engineering, will moderate and explore how clearly articulated principles can guide the direction of technological advancements like AI-enabled drug discovery.
