DeepMind’s AI predicts almost exactly when and where it’s going to rain

Reading Time: 5 minutes First protein folding, now weather forecasting: London-based AI firm DeepMind is continuing its run applying deep learning to hard science problems. Working with the Met Office, the UK’s national weather service, DeepMind has developed a deep-learning tool called DGMR that can accurately predict the likelihood of rain in the next 90 minutes—one of weather forecasting’s toughest … Read more

Without Code for DeepMind’s Protein AI, This Lab Wrote Its Own

Reading Time: 7 minutes Unbeknownst to them, at DeepMind, an extensive scientific paper detailing their system was already under review at Nature, according to John Jumper, who leads the AlphaFold project. DeepMind had submitted their manuscript to Nature on May 11. At that point, the scientific community knew little about DeepMind’s timeline. That changed three days after Baker’s preprint … Read more

Researchers match DeepMind’s AlphaFold2 protein folding power with faster, freely available model – TechCrunch

Reading Time: 10 minutes DeepMind stunned the biology world late last year when its AlphaFold2 AI model predicted the structure of proteins (a common and very difficult problem) so accurately that many declared the decades-old problem “solved.” Now researchers claim to have leapfrogged DeepMind the way DeepMind leapfrogged the rest of the world, with RoseTTAFold, a system that does … Read more
