“We are using Al to learn how to develop the next generation of lifesaving drugs.”

Prof. Sarel-Jacob Fleishman

Department of Biomolecular Sciences

Turning Complex Data Into Knowledge

Across biology, health, neuroscience, physics, sustainability, and more, artificial intelligence synthesizes massive amounts of data faster than ever. As Prof. Shimon Ullmann from the Department of Computer Science and Applied Mathematics says, "We believe that making the most advanced techniques and methods coming out of artificial intelligence can help scientists across the entire Weizmann Institute."

AI at Work

Analyze clouds and their role in climate change

Weizmann scientists are using Al to achieve an unprecedented understanding of how cloud formation mediates Earth's energy balance and water cycle.

Predict the trajectory of a virus

Weizmann scientists are using Al to predict where the outbreak of viruses will occur and spread, helping to contain proliferation and save lives.

Better diagnose and treat diseases

Some of today's most important biomedical insights are emerging from datasets so huge that they can only be analyzed with the help of AI technologies.


Why AI?

Most people hear "artificial intelligence" and worry about the negative impacts it will have. The Weizmann Institute hears "artificial intelligence" and thinks of all the ways Al can be used to accelerate medical and scientific research and improve the lives of people all around the world.

Why Now?

The Weizmann Institute is accelerating the pace of discovery and laying the groundwork for a humanity-first future with AI. With a multidisciplinary team of top scientists, engineers, and experts in machine learning, this flagship will enable advances across multiple fields of science and medicine, with the potential to improve countless lives.
