Artificial Intelligence vs Antibiotic Resistance
Artificial intelligence could be a game changer as scientists work to combat the growing threat of antibiotic resistance.
Today, as the world emerges from the Covid-19 pandemic, another severe global health challenge is materializing: the growing ineffectiveness of antibiotics. Bacterial resistance is something that occurs naturally, but the ubiquitous overuse of antibiotics means antimicrobial resistance (AMR) can now be classified as a major global health threat.
Antibiotics, which are essentially medications that destroy or slow down the growth of bacteria, are critical drugs, long hailed as one of modern medicine’s most important discoveries. Many can successfully treat bacterial infections, preventing the spread of disease and reducing serious disease-related complications.
