Y Combinator Startup Uses AI To Design New Drug-Induced States Of Consciousness
Mindstate Design Labs raised $11.5M in seed funding to create “new novel states of consciousness that just don’t exist yet.”
The company is taking a reverse approach to drug discovery. Researchers will design a unique state of mind first and then create a compound that can get you there.
How? Using predictive AI technology, subjective data from 7,000+ trip reports, and biochemical data on how different molecules interact with receptors in the body.
Who’s brave enough to test out a brand new state of mind?
