• A Novel Drug Repositioning Approach Based on Collaborative Metric Learning

    5 days ago - By IEEE/ACM

    Computational drug repositioning, which is an efficient approach to find potential indications for drugs, has been used to increase the efficiency of drug development. The drug repositioning problem essentially is a top-K recommendation task that recommends most likely diseases to drugs based on drug and disease related information. Therefore, many recommendation methods can be adopted to drug repositioning. Collaborative metric learning algorithm can produce distance metrics that capture the important relationships among objects, and has been widely used in recommendation domains. By...
