Mapping the immune system could lead to the creation of drugs that help our bodies win the fight against cancer and other diseases. That’s the big idea behind immunotherapy. The problem: the immune system is incredibly complex.
Enter Immunai, a biotech company that’s using cutting-edge genomics & ML technology to map the human immune system and develop new immunotherapies against cancer and autoimmune diseases.
On this episode of NVIDIA’s AI Podcast, host Noah Kravitz spoke with Luis Voloch, co-founder and CTO of Immunai, about tackling the challenges of the immune system with a machine learning and data science mindset.
