NISS-Merck Virtual Meet-Up: "Applications of Machine Learning in the Pharmaceutical Industry"

Wednesday, April 25, 2018
The National Institute of Statistical Science (NISS) and Merck are sponsoring a Virtual Meet-Up on Applications of Machine Learning in the Pharmaceutical Industry.  Machine learning has been used to create algorithms for effective web searches, speech recognition, self-driving cars and a host other useful purposes.  It is a technology that has become both powerful and pervasive. In this meet-up we will discuss how these algorithms and this mode of thinking have been applied to problems in the pharmaceutical industry.
