 Session Abstract – PMWC Silicon Valley


The session will discuss how biopharma companies are implementing new interpretable semantic AI technologies (combining AI/ML and knowledge graphs) to continuously update knowledge based on vast amounts research and clinical data. We will focus on applications in drug discovery and in clinical trials (alternatively we can focus on only one of these areas).
