If you had a superhuman expert who could read through thousands of articles, journals and reports in a split second and tell you which ones are relevant, that person would be worth his or her weight in gold a thousand times over. Pharmacovigilance and regulatory intelligence experts are starting to adopt the latest in cutting edge semantic technology to simulate that superhuman research expert. Less searching, less reading; more finding, more knowing. They simply show the system what’s important to them, and the system finds everything that’s relevant across endless information sources and alerts them when the most relevant new information is available. No keywords, no taxonomies, no false positives. Come see firsthand what secrets the most forward-thinking pharmacovigilance and regulatory intelligence experts are adopting right now to gain a competitive advantage and put more vigilance into their pharmacovigilance initiatives, and more intelligence into their regulatory intelligence initiatives.
