Analytics for Pharma Seminar + Workshop in Bloomington, IN on November 16-17, 2016

BLOOMINGTON, IN--(Marketwired - October 11, 2016) - Megaputer Intelligence announces the Analytics for Pharma seminar to be hosted on November 16, 2016 in Bloomington, IN. Leading practitioners will present analytical solutions they developed for addressing typical challenges encountered in the pharmaceutical and life sciences domains: the analysis of call center transcripts, employee survey responses, adverse event reports, and service notes for medical devices. Participants will learn how to solve pharma and life sciences tasks through the use of advanced text analytics techniques and standard industry resources, such as semantic dictionaries and ontologies. Megaputer analysts will provide an overview of how text analysis systems can help researchers automatically derive features and relationships of interest from academic publications and how a pharma company can perform competitive intelligence through the analysis of social media data.

Speakers from Eli Lilly and Merck will present recent successful applications of advanced text analytics at their companies. The seminar will serve as a convenient setup for networking and sharing knowledge with thought leaders from other pharma companies.

Megaputer analysts will outline the typical steps and challenges one encounters when implementing a text analysis solution at a pharma company. In addition, they will discuss theoretical foundations and practical implementations of systems for the analysis of BIG DATA.

The seminar will be followed by a one-day, hands-on workshop arming attendees with practical skills for solving typical text analysis tasks in the pharma and life sciences domains.

"Analytics for Pharma seminar and workshop will equip both non-technical users and data scientists from pharma companies with a thorough understanding of how their companies can benefit from implementing text analysis solutions based on concrete examples of success," says Daniel Priver, Senior Data Analysis Consultant with Megaputer Intelligence. "It provides a unique setup for gaining knowledge about typical applications and useful techniques in advanced text analytics for pharma and the life sciences."
