Extracting Relevant Chemical Information from Patents with Machine Learning

Posted on October 5th, 2020 by in Chemistry

New chemical compounds and reactions are often introduced to the world – and with little fanfare – through patents. It may be years after the patent has been filed before these compounds are published in scholarly journals, and even then it is only a small share of them that are published at all. As a result, it can be easy for these compounds to remain unknown to researchers who may be very interested in them.

To Be a Digital Pharma Player, You Need Data – Reusable Data

Posted on July 21st, 2020 by in Pharma R&D

A new paper published in Drug Discovery Today finds that the pharmaceutical industry is in an “early mature” phase of using artificial intelligence in R&D, which means that major industry players are interested in and pursuing AI, but not as actively as one might expect. For instance, they note that of the top 20 pharma companies that they looked at, only two (Novartis and Johnson & Johnson) have commercialized AI through products and services so far.
