Webinar: Natural Language Processing for Digital Transformation of Unstructured Text

Tuesday, 10 December 2019
11 a.m. EST,  4 p.m. GMT

Life science organizations are embracing the digital revolution, but digital transformation demands data transformation, and this includes developing strategies to access information buried in unstructured text. Many top pharma and healthcare organizations are using the power of Natural Language Processing (NLP) to transform unstructured text into actionable structured data that can be rapidly visualized and analyzed, for decision support from bench to bedside. In this webinar, we will present use cases from pharma, including effective text mining of scientific abstracts and full text papers for rare disease insights.

What will you learn?

  • How Natural Language Processing (NLP) text mining can extract relevant structured data from unstructured scientific literature using ontologies, flexible queries and linguistic processing
  • How flexible NLP text mining from Linguamatics can provide precise results, quickly
  • Real-life success stories from pharmaceutical companies such as Shire, Agios and others who are using NLP to access and gain valuable insights from a variety of unstructured text sources.

Who should attend?

  • Anyone with an interest in getting better value from their textual information, working within pharma/biotech drug discovery and development
