【Turing Seminar Term No. Fourteen】Applying of Schematic Learning in Medicinal Discovery


Abstract: Many basic assignments in the sector of new pharmaceutical discovery are closely associated with schematic learning algorithm and graphic neutral network study. The report starts by specifying molecular diagram assignment in new pharmaceutical discovery sector by presenting the first GraphAF, the first model generated based on autoregression flow that has grabbed the best effect in generation of multiple molecular diagrams. It follows by designing a model G2Gs that does not hinge on any chemical domain knowledge for the assignment of molecular synthesis route design. Its performance resembles that of template-based methods, but does not rely on domain knowledge like those template methods. This model has strong interpretability and scalability. This work was completed by Shi Chence, a student of the first Turing Class of Peking University, as the first author in his undergraduate graduation thesis. Relevant results were published in the top conferences namely ICLR2020 and ICML2020 in machine learning and medical care. It attracted extensive attention from scholars in the field.
