Newswise — Oak Brook, IL – The February edition of SLAS Technology is a special collection of articles focused on “Artificial Intelligence in Process Automation” by Guest Editor Cenk Ündey, Ph.D. (Amgen, Thousand Oaks, CA, USA).
This SLAS Technology special collection targets the use of artificial intelligence (AI) techniques and technologies as applied specifically to drug discovery, automated gene editing and machine learning. As AI becomes increasingly more prevalent in research, medicine and even everyday life, laboratory automation has gone beyond hardware advancements toward new levels of precision and complexity. Beyond research, AI serves as a powerful tool for clinicians diagnosing and treating patients in a medical setting. The AI advancements presented in this issue highlight the wide spectrum of medical AI breakthroughs.
This month’s issue of SLAS Technology also celebrates the top 10 most-cited articles within the journal’s history. Over the past decade, the publication’s priority has been to provide a platform for researchers to share technological advancements as well as a resource to continually share the impact of technology on life sciences and biomedical research.
The February issue of SLAS Discovery includes nine articles of original research in addition to the cover article.
