VEGA-QSAR: AI Inside a Platform for Predictive Toxicology

  title={VEGA-QSAR: AI Inside a Platform for Predictive Toxicology},
  author={Emilio Benfenati and Alberto Manganaro and Giuseppina C. Gini},
Computer simulation and predictive models are widely used in engineering, much less considered in life sciences. We present an initiative aimed to establish a dialogue within the community of scientists, regulators, industry representatives, offering a platform which combines the predictive capability of computer models, with some explanation tools, which may be convincing and helpful for human users to derive a conclusion. The resulting system covers a large set of toxicological endpoints.
