Behind the Scenes: Designing Better Medicines with Big Data & AI

In a world where so much has been reimagined by technology, why are hundreds of millions of people suffering from incurable diseases and healthcare spending placing an unsustainable burden on society? Despite an explosion in scientific research and exponential advances in technology, bringing a new medicine to market takes 10+ years, costs up to $2.5bn and has over a 90% likelihood of failure. It is an industry that represents one of the greatest unmet human needs and is in desperate need for change.

Join the Benevolent team at SXSW for a behind the scenes introduction from our scientists and AI experts, as they embark on a journey to better understand the causes of devastating diseases and redefine the way in which new medicines are discovered and brought to patients.

Learn how to unlock the value of decades of scientific research to create a powerful platform for scientists to explore, better understand disease, and bring effective treatments to patients.
