Cheminformatics …

“PaRoutes is a framework for benchmarking multi-step retrosynthesis methods, i.e. route predictions”

“The GT4SD (Generative Toolkit for Scientific Discovery) is an open-source platform to accelerate hypothesis generation in the scientific discovery process. It provides a library for making state-of-the-art generative AI models easier to use.”

… beyond Cheminformatics …

“Deep Learning Is Hitting a Wall”
(Or is it? Also see discussions on

“Machine Learning vs Statistics”
A (non-)debate

… and clearly beyond Cheminformatics

Bloodywood – Machi Bhasad, and Aaj
(Indian folk/metal… and pretty good I think!)

I believe this is all from my side for now – if you have any information for me to circulate, or wish to present at one of our next Cambridge Cheminformatics or Digital Science for Drug Discovery Meetings, please just let me know, cheers!

Best wishes,
