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.

Webinar: Using machine learning to identify adverse events from scientific literature

Posted on February 5th, 2020 by in Pharmacovigilance

The “vigilance” aspect of the pharmacovigilance process can be very challenging. Always being on guard and knowing all of the places to look can be difficult. In a sea of information, it can even seem like a nearly impossible task to maintain awareness of all adverse events (AE). That is why there has been a lot of buzz around technologies that can help automate parts of the pharmacovigilance process.

Finding the Corpus of Knowledge for Machine Learning/AI In Chemistry

Posted on January 14th, 2020 by in Chemistry

Machine learning for predicting chemistry is an area of intense research and publication. However, since the terminology used to describe this activity is diverse it can be difficult to identify all of the publications describing use of computers to predict chemical outcomes or retrosynthesis paths.
