how AI can cope with the threat of superbugs
A World Health Organization report, released earlier this year, also found that none of the 43 antibiotics currently under development “sufficiently address the drug resistance problem” in bacteria considered the most dangerous to public health.
The situation, as it stands, seems bleak – but there is hope. Advances in technology greatly improve the way researchers discover and develop drugs, and antibiotics are no exception. Researchers around the world are using artificial intelligence (AI) in new and innovative ways to combat the growing threat of antibiotic resistance, and some are seeing promising results.
As with other classes of drugs, AI helps scientists discover new antibiotics faster and more accurately than traditional methods have allowed in the past.
