As a company that is committed to driving innovation and advancing the development of AI in the sector, InstaDeep was eager to return to the event and share its expertise to fellow attendees. On the second day of the conference, Karim Beguir, the CEO and Co-founder of InstaDeep, delivered a presentation on the impact and use of Large Language Models (LLMs) in Biology. He explained how InstaDeep uses these technologies to address challenging problems in protein design and genomics tasks, showcasing the company’s expertise in AI and Deep Learning.

During his presentation, Karim shared his vision of an “AI quadruple exponential ” that is powered by LLMs and driven by data. He highlighted how the field of Biologics is one of the largest sectors being redefined by AI language models, and provided examples of how it is now possible to derive crucial biological properties, such as DNA properties, from sequence alone. He also discussed the vast opportunities that AI offers to the Biotech industry and how InstaDeep is leveraging AI, high-performance computing, and technical expertise to drive significant breakthroughs in Biology.
