TikTok owner ByteDance will develop drugs using artificial intelligence. It turned out based on vacancies published by the company. For example, ByteDance has published five vacancies highlighting the need for specialists to interact with artificial intelligence algorithms to develop and release new drugs.
In particular, the company is looking for people with a doctorate in disciplines such as computer science, mathematics, computational biology and computational chemistry. It will be recalled that four years ago ByteDance formed a division of ByteDance AI Lab to study and develop AI algorithms.
These algorithms were designed to service the company’s content services – they were to issue recommendation videos in TikTok and other similar programs. Now on the official website of the laboratory there is information that it is embarking on a broader approach to the development of AI.
