Scientists have used artificial intelligence (AI) to identify a novel antibiotic capable of eliminating a dangerous strain of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. By employing AI, researchers efficiently narrowed down a vast pool of potential chemicals to a small selection suitable for laboratory testing. This process led to identifying a powerful experimental...Read more
