This talk will explore how we can develop and use generative AI to help researchers and clinicians to enable scientific innovations. I will first discuss how we use AI to generate recipes for making and validating new drugs. Then I will present how we developed visual-language AI to help clinicians interpret histology images. Finally, I will discuss how we use large language models (LLM) to help all of us to write better papers. I will also discuss perspectives on what’s on the new horizon for generative AI.
