    This video is almost an hour long but interesting;

    YouTube

    and this above video is about the same AI I had previously posted about with the link below (forget which thread I posted that);

    There is also this much shorter (~6 min) video about it;

    I found this yet another video about this same subject matter. This time this video (about ~7 mins long) is obviously much more for laypeople who know next-to-nothing about it nor its importance;

    YouTube

    As it explains at the beginning of this video, this breakthrough isn't just hype but a big deal and will be the start of a scientific revolution and the video then goes on to explain why so in nice simply layperson terms.
    The protein folding problem in the past was always a huge hindrance and showstopper to biological and medical research but now, thanks to this new breakthrough, that's about to change; Trust me, this is a big deal!

    For many years now I had actually been predicting that AI will one day solve this problem but, and bearing in mind I am an AI expert, I didn't predict that it would happen anywhere near this soon; I was thinking more like ~50 years from now and thus not in my lifetime, so I am really very pleasantly surprised and delighted by this.
