Machine Learning to Fight Antimicrobial Resistance

The seven top machine learning projects to fight against antimicrobial resistance are explained. Antimicrobial resistance  is one of the key reasons of human sufferings in modern hospitals. Preventing microbes from developing resistance to drugs has become as important issue for treating illnesses across the world. Artificial Intelligence, machine learning, genomics and multi-omics data integration are the fast-growing emerging technologies to counter antimicrobial resistance problems. Here,  Dr. Amit Ray explains how these technologies can be used in seven key areas to counter antimicrobial resistance issues.
