This is entirely false.  Arris Pharmaceutical is continuing its
development and application of artificial intelligence methods
(primarily machine learning, neural networks, and computational
geometry) to the analysis of biological data to enable the drug
design process.  Arris has recently signed collaborative agreements
with two major pharmaceutical firms:  Kabi Pharmacia (of Sweden)
and Amgen (of California).
