Machine learningMachine learning, artificial intelligence (AI), and other software developments have made it possible to increase the speed, cost, and overall effectiveness of the drug discovery process through enhancing pattern recognition. Thomas Chittenden, a team leader at the drug discovery company Wuxi NextCODE, commented on the role AI is playing in the drug discovery process in an interview with the scientific journal Nature in 2018 by saying:

Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPRCRISPR) technology gives drug discovery researchers the ability to alter sequences and expression levels of genes to help them identify therapeutic drug targets and test the therapeutic efficiency of drug candidates. CRISPR has become more useful in the drug discovery process as the cost of using CRISPR and DNA sequencing technologies has decreased due to technological and economies of scale improvements. CRISPR can play a role in several stages of the drug discovery process as outlined in the following diagram:
