Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies have the potential to advance drug development in multiple areas, including candidate identification and refinement, nonclinical and clinical research, manufacturing, and post market surveillance. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recognized this potential, and is actively seeking feedback and engagement from stakeholders in this area as the agency works towards building a regulatory framework.  In this program, we will review FDA’s current thinking on the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning in drug development, and explore ways in which drug companies are using these technologies to improve their business.
