Webinar Description:

"Relevant knowledge at the right time is priceless in the enterprise", according to Forrester. This is particularly true in the highly competitive pharma industry where knowledge is hidden in a deluge of structured and unstructured data of all kinds, buried among publicly available sources like trade databases, scientific publications, and patents, and internally from R&D, clinical trials, recorded patient interviews and more.

During this 40-minute session, Sean Liu, Global Head of Translational Science Systems at Takeda Pharmaceutical will introduce the genesis of AI-powered Search & Analytics at Takeda on their Journey to become Information-Driven.

Jeff Evernham, Vice President of Customer Solutions at Sinequa will present on the state of the art of Search & Analytics and how large organizations leverage this technology to:

  • Alert researchers to the latest scientific developments in their fields
  • Identify the most suitable scientific partners
  • Surface networks of experts and Key Opinion Leaders on any given subject
  • Find and discover research trends
  • Access information on drugs and diseases starting from chemical structures
