'AI is increasingly outperforming human intelligence'


Health-related data and its collection have grown exponentially recently, thanks in part to a range of digital tools and the Internet of Things (IoT) which uses sensors to collect millions of data points of physiological data from patients over a period of time. According to Promit Roy, PhD candidate, Trinity Business School, Trinity College, and associate director innovation, Novartis Ireland, the "enormous data these technologies and channels cater are very resource and time intensive." Analysing this data and identifying patterns and signals and adverse events are "crucial for life science industries," he says. "However, screening and processing data to eliminate noise and find knowledge is a challenge for the pharmaceutical industry. This requires new approaches to handle/screen them for useful information."
