Google Unveils Artificial Intelligence to Predict Human Molecule Behavior

Artificial intelligence is giving machines the power to generate videos, write computer code and even carry on a conversation.

It is also accelerating efforts to understand the human body and fight disease.

On Wednesday, Google DeepMind, the tech giant’s core AI lab, and Isomorphic Labs, a sister company, unveiled a more powerful version of AlphaFold, an AI technology that helps scientists understand the behavior of the microscopic mechanisms that drive cells on the planet. Human Body.

An early version of AlphaFold, released in 2020, solved a puzzle that had plagued scientists for more than 50 years. It was called “the protein folding problem”.

Proteins are the microscopic molecules that guide the behavior of all living things. These molecules begin as strings of chemical compounds before twisting and bending into three-dimensional shapes that define how they interact with other microscopic mechanisms in the body.
