Robot Vs Cancer

It’s been long said that the robot revolution was going to change our lives forever. Whether it be the extinction of mankind or the optimization of everything from weapons, to manufacturing and even the finance industry.

One of the most important uses for robots and artificial intelligence comes in the form of human health. Over the past 50 years, there has been a serious problem: ”mapping the three-dimensional shapes of the proteins that are responsible for diseases from cancer to Covid-19. Googles Deepmind has solved this issue.

According to a new report from The Independent, Googles Deepmind claims to have created a program named AlphaFold that can solve these mapping problems in a matter of days. This would be a major development if true and would mean this technology has arrived decades before it was expected.

There are millions and millions of known proteins in the human body and only a small percentage are understood. These technological developments could mean big changes for the way we fight disease.

Nobel Laureate and Professor Venki Ramakrishnan had this to say on the matter: “This computational work represents a stunning advance on the protein-folding problem, a 50-year-old grand challenge in biology. It has occurred decades before many people in the field would have predicted. It will be exciting to see the many ways in which it will fundamentally change biological research.

I am not a financial advisor and my comments should never be taken as financial advice. Investments come with risk, so always do your research and analysis beforehand.
