Deep Learning becomes an essential part of research in many areas. Latest advancements in machine learning allow neural networks to solve such tasks as playing Chess, driving cars and identifying people on photos better than humans.
Research in drug discovery significantly affects human life.
Developing drugs against aging and diseases like cancer and Alzheimer can be accelerated with machine learning. Traditional drug discovery pipelines take years or even decades to produce new medicine, whereas Insilico Medicine aims to shorten this time using Deep Learning techniques.

Task
When a drug is administered to the cell and appears in proximity to a specific protein, it interacts with it by forming chemical bonds.
An active molecule must adopt a specific shape to bind to a protein stably. If a molecule cannot bind to the active site of the protein well, it can't be considered a drug candidate.
In this competition, you will have to predict if the given molecule can bend well to suit some geometrical conditions.
While this task can be computed analytically, it usually requires a lot of computational resources for a simulation. We ask you to train a Deep Learning model that will be used for initial screening of drug databases.
Prizes
Authors of best solutions will be offered a collaboration for the publication of their results in scientific journals. Top three participants from ROC Taiwan will receive valuable prizes.
