This four-day workshop aims to equip early career researchers in Africa with the tools and knowledge to apply data science approaches to infectious disease drug discovery. Participants will learn to use Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to facilitate biomedical research. The workshop will promote skills for those interested in all stages of drug discovery, from preclinical research to late development stages. The incorporation of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning into research is a cost-effective means to advance scientific discovery, yet the implementation of these tools within sub-saharan Africa is scarce; this event aims to reduce this imbalance. The workshop is directed towards scientists residing in African countries, who are traditionally underrepresented within the STEM community.
