    Umesh Nandal is a Director of Data Science at Elsevier. As an AI expert with a Master’s in Chemistry, he embodies what Elsevier brings to the table – an actionable fusion of data and domain expertise. “Cross-functional teams combining data science, tech and domain knowledge is the only way we can achieve our collective goal: […]

  • AI-driven innovation in life sciences: Data as data should be

    Your AI applications are only as strong as your data. This is why Elsevier strives to make data not only align with FAIR usability principles but also be maximized for trustworthiness and relevance. In this way we can confidently offer the full potential of data science in an easy-to-use manner – from data acquisition and […]

  • Data Science & AI amplifies your innovative drug R&D capabilities

    If you work in Life Sciences & Health, you’re likely aware of what Data Science and AI can bring to the table when it comes to sparking innovation. However, if you are not Big Pharma, it’s the how that slows down most LSH companies and organizations. We believe that Elsevier’s road-tested data and semantic technologies can address […]

  • AI precision medicine accelerates the search for rare disease treatment

    AI and precision medicine are both changing drug discovery and development as we know it. Precision medicine that is powered by AI stands to be transformative, especially for the treatment of rare diseases. Elsevier was recently part of a collaboration that sought to demonstrate how AI precision medicine could lead researchers to new treatments for […]

  • Accelerating synthetic chemistry with a predictive retrosynthesis solution

    In most aspects of life, we think of “endless possibilities” as a good thing. But in science, the wealth of possibilities can be daunting. Pharmaceutical researchers typically start with a disease that they want to tackle, find a target, and then try to identify compounds which interact with that target. There may be around 200-300 […]

  • Confronting the Problem of AI Bias

    When thinking of artificial intelligence (AI), many people rely on cultural touchstones from science fiction films and TV. They might think of HAL, the calm-voiced AI from 2001: A Space Odyssey, or Data, the even-tempered android from Star Trek. We tend to imagine that artificial intelligence will be driven by reason, logic and facts – […]

  • 4 Notable Life Sciences Trends from the Tech Trends Report

    The Future Today Institute has released its 2021 Tech Trends Report (14th Annual Edition), a comprehensive report on strategic trends that it anticipates will affect business, government, education, media and society in the coming year. We noted four trends discussed in the report’s Health, Medicine & Science section that will be of particular interest to […]

  • Mutually empowering – semantic-based machine learning and subject matter expertise

    In a day dedicated to emerging science and technologies at the Pistoia Alliance virtual conference Collaborative R&D in Action, SciBite CTO James Malone opened the program with a compelling exploration of use cases for semantic-based machine learning (ML). A simple but elegant ML strategy based on “seeding” named entity recognition (NER) can facilitate ontology creation, […]
