Semantic technologies are playing an increasing role in enriching data in pharma research through the use of better metadata. This approach makes data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable, thereby giving it higher value and usability. At the same time, machine learning provides a powerful mechanism for statistically parsing and manipulating data using automation.

In this webinar, Dr. Eric Little, CEO of LeapAnalysis, and Dr. Tom Plasterer, Senior Director of Oncology Translational Medicine at AstraZeneca, will share their insights and experiences of working together to implement virtualized semantics with machine learning for advanced analysis of complex data in translational medicine applications.

Dr. Little will delve into how LeapAnalysis can drive advanced data connectors alongside machine learning and semantic tech that automatically reads data schemas at the source.

These industry experts will also describe some of the traditional challenges facing researchers in the translational medicine space and how connecting data virtually from multiple sources (extract, transform and load pipelines) can be used to find real-world patterns that can accelerate research dramatically in the future.

Attend this webinar to learn how to:

  • Establish virtualized web-based data integration and interoperability without copying, moving or migrating data into a new system or master data source.
  • Search across and analyze disparate sources directly, even when they contain inconsistent labels, terminologies or schemas.
  • Utilize a wide range of data sources outside the data lake environment for search and analytics.
  • Drive results to user groups with no additional training, by implementing business intelligence tools and user interfaces that lab teams are already familiar with.
  • Get tangible business answers out of your data using the scientists you already have, instead of requiring highly specialized data scientists to connect data and run analyses.
