ACCESS RECORDING

In the Life Science industry, researchers and clinicians need to base decisions on the best possible view of data. As 80% of data resides in unstructured sources, rapid effective access to the knowledge buried in text documents is essential. This webinar demonstrates how NLP and advanced text analytics provide a powerful solution to these challenges. Use cases span from drug discovery, development and safety, through to post-market surveillance and healthcare delivery.

What you will learn:

During the webinar we will review how NLP can reduce manual effort and provide support across multiple areas in life science including:

  • Gene-disease associations
  • Drug safety
  • Patent analytics
  • Clinical trial analytics
  • Real world data
  • Precision medicine

Who should attend?

This webinar demonstrates some uses of NLP across a variety of data sources, and will be of interest to anyone who wants to understand more about the power of NLP to gain more value from unstructured text:

  • Informaticians, Information Professionals, Researchers, Managers
  • Pharma, Biotech and related industries

Responsible for:

  • Target ID/Validation
  • Biomarker discovery and precision medicine
  • Clinical trial analytics
  • Safety/Tox
  • Pharmacovigilance
  • Real world data
  • Medical affairs
