A continuing partnership between BenevolentAI and AstraZeneca business which specializes in medication discovery and development has reached its third milestone successfully.

The accomplishment represents a significant advancement in the effort to revolutionize drug discovery by utilizing the power of AI. The collaboration of both organizations seeks to use BenevolentAI's cutting-edge AI technology to accelerate the discovery and development of new therapies. BenevolentAI's AI-driven drug discovery platform and AstraZeneca's experience in pharmaceutical research and development will be combined to address the difficult problems associated with getting new medicines to patients.

The third milestone achieved shows how well its AI technology works at finding prospective medication targets and treatments.
