The Uptick in AI Use Will Bring Pharma Into the Future Faster - PharmaVOICE

#artificialintelligence

The top 10 pharma companies have all collaborated with or acquired AI technologies: Novartis, Roche, Pfizer, Merck, AstraZeneca, GSK, Sanofi, Abbvie, Bristol-Myers Squibb, and Johnson & Johnson. Reports projecting where the industry would be in terms of artificial intelligence (AI) in 2020 predicted that AI and machine learning were set to transform the pharmaceutical industry … in the near future. Rock Health has monitored investments within the digital health ecosphere since 2011, and it reports that investments have started to shift into the pharmaceutical arena, mostly within the categories of R&D, clinical trials, and digital therapeutics, which includes using AI. According to a 2017 report by Pharma IQ, 95% of the pharma professionals surveyed expected the impact of intelligent enterprise technologies to take hold in the wider drug development industry over the next three years, with one-fifth of the respondents believing that the industry was on the cusp of a revolution. The cusp is here now and will continue to grow into 2020.


Pioneering cancer drug trial under way in Derry

#artificialintelligence

A pioneering new clinical trial on a drug that could potentially help millions of men with prostate cancer, is under way in Derry. Tumour samples from men being treated locally are being collated to test the drug's effectiveness at the Clinical Transitional Research and Innovation Centre (C-TRIC), labs on the Altnagelvin Hospital site. The new trials are the result of a partnership with American pharmaceutical company Lantern Pharma and the PRAISE (prostate cancer artificial intelligence study using ex vivo models) trial is using artificial intelligence to test a cancer drug called LP-184 to predict which types of tumours are sensitive to it. The company said the groundbreaking work, which is partially funded by Invest NI, does not involve human or animals trials due to the use of AI. The new project will help guide future cancer research and clinical trials and early indications suggest there could also be benefits for research into the treatment of ovarian and liver cancer.

Digital Pharma Europe (EXL)

#artificialintelligence

In an effort to provide our most diverse pharmaceutical and medical device executive mix to date, this year's venue provides a centralized platform that is close to numerous UK pharma headquarters as well as Heathrow Airport. This will also allow for easy access to UK pharmaceuticals and medical device organizations and facilitate expedited travel time for European and US counterparts.


Artificial Intelligence Is The Real Thing For Pharma And Medtech

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence might seem more the preserve of computer nerds and tech giants than pharma companies. But according to Boehringer Ingelheim's global chief data scientist, Philipp Diesinger, "the entire industry is looking at data science and AI". This increased focus on data could drastically change the way drugs are developed and paid for. For example, AI will be vital if outcomes-based healthcare is to be successfully implemented, pointed out Philips' chief innovation & strategy officer, Jeroen Tas, who also stressed that AI really signaled a new way of handling data. He described AI as "the way you interpret data.
