“The tool, described in Nature on 28 March1, is not the first software to wield artificial intelligence (AI) instead of human skill and intuition. Yet chemists hail the development as a milestone, saying that it could speed up the process of drug discovery and make organic chemistry more efficient.

“What we have seen here is that this kind of artificial intelligence can capture this expert knowledge,” says Pablo Carbonell, who designs synthesis-predicting tools at the University of Manchester, UK, and was not involved in the work. He describes the effort as “a landmark paper”.”

Highlights of 2017

*** UPDATED on 1/22/2018 ***

Mark’s 2017 Faculty Activity Report (FAR),
summarizing key lab "activities" of the past year.

* Here are dump directories with some excerpts:


These include:

* A full updated CV describing my lab’s activities (in too much detail):


The CV is based on :

– Compiling the people in the lab, viz:



– A dump up to the end of ’17 of all of our scientific papers and our
"other writings" too.



* There’s also an update on lectures in ’17:

* Private "meetings" link, with authentication only for reference:

* For reference, this involved updating a variety of places on the wiki, viz:


* Finally, I’ve done little write up of some highlights, viz:
