Synopsis
Artificial Intelligence is presently experiencing a renaissance in development of new methods and practical applications to ongoing challenges in Chemistry. We are pleased to announce that the Biological & Medicinal Chemistry Sector (BMCS) and Chemical Information & Computer Applications Group (CICAG) of the Royal Society of Chemistry are organising a one-day conference entitled Artificial Intelligence in Chemistry to present the current efforts in applying these new methods. We will combine aspects of artificial intelligence and deep machine learning methods to applications in chemistry.
