We know a lot more about how AlphaFold 2 works, but the mystery of why proteins fold the way they do remains something of a mystery.
DeepMind, the AI unit of Google that invented the chess champ neural network AlphaZero a few years back, shocked the world again in November with a program that had solved a decades-old problem of how proteins fold.
It’s protein-structure prediction for the people. Software that accurately determines the 3D shape of proteins is set to become widely available to scientists.
On 15 July, the London-based company DeepMind released an open-source version of its deep-learning neural network AlphaFold 2 and described its approach in a paper in Nature1.
