Webinar: A gentle introduction to Artificial Intelligence in Pharma

On May-23, 2018 we delivered the webinar “A gentle introduction to Artificial Intelligence in Pharma. Text-based sources”. Although it’s hard to believe, the level of marketing hype around Artificial Intelligence has even surpassed the one about digital transformation or Big Data.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is the ability of a computer program or a machine to think and learn.

Did you know that in the Pharma industry, up to 80% of business-relevant information is made up of text?

We see that AI is transforming the Pharma industry from top to bottom.

During the session we covered these items:

  • Introduction to Artificial Intelligence.
  • How they create value with text-based sources.
  • Case study: analysis of the Voice of the Patient.

Interested? Here you have the presentation and the recording of the webinar.

 

 


Voice of the Employee Dashboard

Voice of the Employee gathers the needs, wishes, hopes, and preferences of all employees within an organization. The VoE takes into account both explicit needs, such as salaries, career, health, and retirement, as well as tacit needs such as job satisfaction and the respect of co-workers and supervisors. This post follows the line of Voice of the Customer in Excel: creating a dashboard. We are creating another dashboard, this time for the Voice of the Employee.

Text-based data sources are a key factor for any organization that wants to understand the “whys”.

Surveys and HR: why do you need open-ended questions?

New health demo: tagging drug names, symptoms, diseases, and adverse drug reactions

Documents in the health domain show specific vocabulary and linguistic structure. If you take a look at clinical Records or Electronic Health Records (EHR), you will see that it is also made up of unstructured data (that is, free text). This free text contains weird names of drugs and diseases that are even difficult to read. For all these reasons, text analytics techniques must be adapted to the health domain.

We have put together a number of resources in a demo that shows how MeaningCloud can tag drug names, symptoms, diseases, procedures, and so on.
