Although hair loss is natural and can sort of happen to anyone, it’s still a major concern for some. Scientists from the Qingdao University of Science and Technology and colleagues used an artificial intelligence to design a new treatment for baldness. SyFy shares their findings.
Researchers used an artificial intelligence to predict chemical compounds which might be effective at combating hair loss. Their target was the reactive oxygen species — oxygen free radicals — which overpower antioxidant enzymes in the body. When that balance gets out of whack it can cause damage to hair follicles and increase hair loss. Prior efforts have been made to develop compounds which could disrupt free radicals and allow hair growth to continue unabated, but they largely haven’t been successful. The artificial intelligence might be changing that.
