TITLE : “An introduction to Artificial Intelligence in pharmaceutical industry beyond drug discovery”
Date & Time : August 24, 2023, 11:00 AM
Venue : # 102, CDS Seminar Hall
The development of machine learning algorithms geared towards drug discovery and chemoinformatics has seen unprecedented progress in recent years. Much of this revolution has derived from progress in deep learning and generative modelling. It is worth noting, however, that the ‘Ideas to Patient’ journey in a pharmaceutical setting is much more expansive and data-rich even beyond the discovery phases. There is a possibility of deriving significant value using AI algorithms in the phases of drug safety and efficacy evaluations, patient analytics and post-market surveillance as these stages involve the analysis of large amounts of multimodal information. In this talk, we shall discuss the potential for using machine learning approaches in these parts of the drug development pipeline, with a particular focus on machine learning for toxicologic pathology.
Dr Arijit Patra is a Senior Principal Scientist at UCB Biopharma UK. He holds a PhD in machine learning for healthcare imaging from the University of Oxford, where he was a Rhodes Scholar (India & Exeter, 2016). Prior to that, he completed a dual degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) at Kharagpur, India. He has also been associated with AstraZeneca, Shell, Microsoft Research and CSIR-South Africa at various points in his career and has been actively involved in the AI4SG (AI for Social Good) community. He has authored several publications around machine learning and medical imaging and is a reviewer for multiple peer reviewed venues such as NeurIPS, ICML, MICCAI and several journals.
