    In this post, I explain why biology is experiencing its "AI moment". That is to say, many areas of biology, and in particular, imaging, are being significantly transformed by the use of AI. I walk through several examples of AI-first imaging analysis in biology through the lens of technical developments in computer vision. Finally, I make the case for building full-stack solutions in biology using the pharmaceutical industry as an example. I present an analogy for reasoning about where value accrues in AI-first biology......
