For years, drug researchers have tapped computers to take serendipity out of the discovery equation, and a group from the University of Texas at Austin has advanced computational drug discovery further with updated image-reconstruction and modeling techniques, according to the university.
Professor Peter Stone has been elected as a Fellow of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) for his significant contributions to machine learning, multiagent systems, and robotics, and pioneering applications in robot soccer, trading agents, and autonomous driving domains.
Ordinary Americans can't buy intelligent, self-driving cars just yet, but the technology could someday revolutionize one of the nation's most common road rituals—the morning and evening commutes that bookend the workday for millions of people.
From image processing, to 3D modeling, to search algorithms, computer and computational science help improve the drug discovery pipeline
Discoveries in bioinformatics provide new therapeutic interventions to disease by replacing expensive, time-consuming physical experiments with an automated computational search. Public databases now contain experimentally determined sequence and structural information for hundreds of thousands of proteins
Current UTCS Ph.D. Student Suman Jana is the recipient of a Google Ph.D. Fellowship and received the Best Paper Award at the 2012 IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy.
