AI and Data Sciences Showcase:

Emedgene provides solutions that interpret genetic tests automatically, helping geneticists manage their growing workload faster and with higher accuracy. This is achieved with an interpretable ML engine that has learned to perform genomics research, after training with millions of data points from patient cases, databases, and the most recent genomics publications. Healthcare organizations using Emedgene reduce time spent on interpretation and reporting and increase yield without increasing headcount, ultimately enabling wide-spread adoption of personalized medicine.

Breaking The Interpretation Bottleneck: Successfully Applying Machine Learning To Genomics
While sequencing is becoming easier, interpreting results of genetic tests is a manual and lengthy process that forms a bottleneck to the adoption of genetic-based care. We’ll cover the complexities applying machine learning to genetic interpretation, and the challenge of keeping up with current genomics discoveries. We’ll also present the results of a study with Baylor Genetics, demonstrating the accuracy and utility of an AI solution in clinical use.

 Session Abstract – PMWC 2020 Silicon Valley

The PMWC 2020 AI Company Showcase will provide a 15-minute time slot for selected AI companies to present their latest technologies to an audience of leading investors, potential clients, and partners. We will hear from companies building technologies that expedite the pre-clinical and clinical drug discovery and development process, accelerate patient diagnosis and treatment, or develop scalable systems framework to make AI and deep/machine learning a reality.
