AlphaFold delivers breakthrough in protein structure prediction
Until now, scientists only knew the structures of a small fraction of the proteins in the human body, which are the basic building blocks of life. The artificial intelligence AlphaFold has recently changed that. Last year, researchers from the British company DeepMind, a subsidiary of the Google holding Alphabet, achieved something that was considered impossible: almost perfect predictions of protein structures.
How to avoid gas disasters and fatal consequences
Especially companies in the chemical industry produce, store and process large quantities of hazardous gases and need a reliable system for detecting gas leaks in order to avoid fatal consequences. The solution of our network startup Grandperspective is called scanfeld™ and enables chemical companies to monitor entire chemical parks in order to detect and localize gas leaks of any kind at an early stage.
Faster drug development through genomic data
The development of new drugs is complex, expensive and risky. The Berlin-based company biotx.ai has developed a self-learning software platform that can recognize multi-causal relationships and complex patterns in biomedical data and use them to develop new diagnostic tests and therapies.
Making processes in medical practices simpler through digitization
Munich-based startup Simpleprax is helping to prevent a media discontinuity in the collection of patient data. Medical history forms, forms and administrative documents no longer have to be printed out, but are filled out directly by the patient digitally and imported into the respective practice management software. This replaces manual processes in the doctor's offi
