Impacts of the convergence of life science and AI/Machine Learning on developing the transformative therapies of the future
Transforming life science through AI and machine learning: embracing new horizons
Wednesday 7th December 1pm to 2pm
Online via Zoom, this webinar is brought to you by Connect: Health Tech
The profile and importance of the life science sector has never been higher, with the Covid-19 pandemic accelerating drug discovery and novel treatments, and reshaping society’s view and trust of healthcare technologies. The role of AI bespoke methods and network analysis to uncover hidden pathways and reposition drugs for use in treatments is one example of the positive impacts this interdisciplinary convergence of life science and AI/Machine Learning can have on developing the transformative therapies of the future.
The aim of this event is to discuss how AI and machine learning are transforming the clinical pathway from reducing drug discovery timeframes and improving early detection diagnostics, to enabling more efficient clinical trials that benefit patient treatments and outcomes.The panel event will be held online via Zoom to widen participation in the event.
