Description
We propose a novel molecular fingerprint-based variational autoencoder applied for molecular generation on real-world drug molecules. We define more suitable and pharma-relevant baseline metrics and tests, focusing on the generation of diverse, drug-like, novel small molecules and scaffolds. When we apply these molecular generation metrics to our novel model, we observe a substantial improvement in chemical synthetic accessibility ($\Delta\bar{{SAS}}$ = -0.83) and in computational efficiency up to 5.9x in comparison to an existing state-of-the-art SMILES-based architecture.
