            There's a lot more than antibiotics on the list up there, yet if you think that bacteria eventually becoming resistant to an antibiotic is a good reason to stop developing antibiotics then I'd better not reply anymore.
            Antibiotics are very important and its very hard and time consuming to find new ones so AI is becoming essential in this field.

          Computational Chemistry/molecular modelling has been a thing in drug discovery for decades, and even still statistical rather than physicochemical/quantum or even empirical modelling has been a thing for basically as long. "AI" is a buzzword meme, not that computational techniques aren't very useful, and on the more Pharmacological end I'd imagine statistical/ML techniques are probably more used now than "chemical" for things like Molecular Docking.

          "AI" is just a way of searching the sample space, that's already a thing under another name

And its recurrent which is an element of complexity missing from modern GPTs but ever present in biology and especially the brain.
    Judging this tech by what's available today is dumb because there are always going to be seismic leaps like this every so often. It's not as simple as extrapolating from "today's architecture but X faster due to more compute"
