Searching for relationships across disparate collections of research documents, articles and reports can be an incredibly time-consuming and labor-intensive process. Boolean keyword searches can produce false positives and omit results that could be highly relevant if the exact search terms aren't found in a document, and laborious taxonomies can be incredibly time-consuming to build and maintain.

Join this informative and educational web symposium to learn about entirely new and highly secure, web-based approaches that leverage the power of machine learning technology to enable product managers and researchers to quickly discover hidden relationships and insights within and across vast, disparate collections of internal and external text-based content. See firsthand how machine learning technology can identify concepts and relationships within unstructured, text-based content, in nearly any language, without the need to build and maintain taxonomies and word libraries. See how to quickly and easily apply machine learning technology across internal research reports stored on your computer or company network or internal software applications, articles from news sources and industry journals in the Web, and open source offerings such as Wikipedia.

Learning Objective Bullet Points:

  • Learn how machine learning reduces the complexity of analyzing wide range of disparate content silos
  • Learn what machine learning technology is, how it’s proven in the US Intelligence Community, in eDiscovery and other highly sensitive environments
  • Understand the challenges and limitations of traditional search technologies, taxonomies and word libraries
  • See the power of visualization applied to unstructured content to quickly reveal hidden insights and relationships
  • Discover new ways to uncover correlations in regulatory intelligence, drug safety information and eCTDs
