At AACS, it was announced that REACHAcross, a software suite developed jointly by UL and the Johns Hopkins University, outperformed animal testing in detecting toxic chemicals. According to the presentation, the software can complete its testing in a matter of seconds and at a fraction of the cost of traditional animal testing. As machine-learning and AI technology are applied to more and more aspects of the medical and scientific fields, how long will it be before they completely supplant animal testing?
