Today we’re joined by Jannis Born, Ph.D. student at ETH & IBM Research Zurich, to discuss his “PaccMann^RL” research. Jannis details how his background in computational neuroscience applies to this research, how RL fits into the goal of anticancer drug discovery, the effect DL has had on his research, and of course, a step-by-step walkthrough of how the framework works to predict the sensitivity of cancer drugs on a cell and then discover new anticancer drugs.
