Scientists use artificial intelligence to discover a new antibiotic that can kill a deadly strain of “superbug” bacteria.

AI helped filter out thousands of potential chemicals and focus on a small group that could be tested in the lab.

As a result, a powerful experimental antibiotic called “Abucin” was discovered, which requires further testing before use.

Researchers in Canada and the United States say that artificial intelligence can make a significant contribution to the development of new drugs.
