AlphaFold developers win US$3-million Breakthrough Prize

DeepMind’s system for predicting the structure of proteins is among five recipients of science’s most lucrative awards. Demis Hassabis and John Jumper, both at DeepMind in London, were recognized for creating the tool that has predicted the 3D structures of almost every known protein on the planet. The award was one of five Breakthrough prizes — awarded for achievements in life sciences, physics and mathematics — announced on 22 September. So far, the data have been harnessed to tackle problems ranging from antibiotic resistance to crop resilience.
