"AI-driven drug discovery is poised to revolutionize the biopharmaceutical industry by enhancing drug development efficiency, accuracy, and cost-effectiveness," said Nicholas B. Dirks, President and CEO of The New York Academy of Sciences. "These technological advancements promise to bring more effective treatments to patients faster, marking a significant milestone in modern medicine and public health."

With only about 10 percent of drug candidates making it through a typical development time of 12 to 18 years, the ability of AI and ML tools to optimize discovery has become an area of intense interest. The influx of substantial financial commitments from private and public sectors drives new collaborations and innovations.

"Our goal is to showcase real world examples from biotech and life science leaders who are already using AI and ML tools to develop new products, transform clinical trials, and work with regulators," said Cure CEO Seema Kumar. "They will share examples of how these tools are changing the trajectory of healthcare research today and transforming the landscape for a healthier tomorrow."

Information for Deepfakes & Democracy in the Age of AI will be available soon.
