Yesterday we told you about DeepMind’s AlphaFold system that uses an attention-based neural network to predict protein folding structure in a matter of days. This avoids needing the huge computing resources to brute-force predictions, such as folding@home or the meticulous and labor intensive use of direct observation both of which take much longer. Today Dr. Kiki is going to help us understand what this advance of neural network training can actually do for us.
