2018 Event Summary

Key Takeaways

AI tools have incredible potential to impact biopharma, but there is a significant amount of work to be done to realize that potential, to deliver critical treatments to patients faster and improve patient outcomes.

Everything boils down to the quality of data that people have access to and how that data is used. The ideal process is to determine the need for the data, then focus on collecting the right kind of data, and finally determine how ML/AI can be used as a tool to optimize that data.

Hiring and retention will not solve the staffing issue – the solution is figuring out how to automate data science to be able to scale up.
