East Coast Seminar: Accelerating Pharma & Biotech R&D through Automated Information Extraction. May 2012

May 2, 2012
Venue:

Linguamatics, Accelrys and Pubget are hosting a free interactive seminar highlighting advancements in Natural Language Processing (NLP)-based text mining and related technologies that can reduce the overall timescale of the drug discovery process.

The ability to efficiently extract facts and relationships from unstructured text can have a dramatic impact in many areas within the Life Science industry. Examples include: reducing the cost of clinical trials and determining where to best invest your company's money and resources through information extraction from patents.

The seminar will focus on the value in using text mining and automation and the associated workflows. Use of NLP text mining technology can significantly speedup processes – often 10-fold – and bring improvements to many areas such as:

  • Target ID/Validation
  • Biomarker Discovery
  • Systems Biology
  • Safety/Toxicity
  • Pharmacovigilance
  • Translational Medicine
  • Competitive Intelligence
  • Sentiment Analysis
  • Patient Records
  • Patent Analysis

The seminar will feature a presentation from Merck along with presentations by Pubget and Accelrys.
