“This year was the first to have an AI-designed drug, but by the end of the decade all new drugs could potentially be designed by AI.”

About ten days ago, I started a countdown on my Facebook “wall.”
Some of my “friends” asked if I was going to send something into space.
When I “commented” that I was leaving Facebook as of May 1st, they begged me not to.
