Now!! DeepMind’s AI Makes Gigantic Leap in Solving Protein Structures

A Google AI offshoot has created an artificial intelligence (AI) network. DeepMind has taken a giant step forward in solving one of biology’s most challenging problems: identifying a protein’s three-dimensional structure from its amino-acid sequence. DeepMind’s software, dubbed AlphaFold, outperformed more than 100 other teams in the CASP (Critical Assessment of Structural Prediction) competition, short…
