The Power of Sparse Data AI in the Pharmaceutical Industry

Article

AI is rapidly being adopted in the pharmaceutical industry. Nonetheless, much pharmaceutical development data is limited, resulting in restricted amounts of usable data. Sparse data AI – the application of AI to restricted amounts of data – is opening up novel avenues for enhanced drug development. In this article, Nanoform’s Jukka Corander looks at how sparse data can help pharma industry AI gain greater transparency and lead to more life-changing medicines reaching the market.

Making the 'Human-Body Internet' More Effective
News

As electronics become smaller and faster, the adoption of "wearables", like smart watches, has increased. However, like regular computers, wearables are vulnerable to conventional hacking. What if we could use the human body itself to transfer and collect information? This area of research is known as human body communication (HBC).

Using Third-party Apps to Analyze Personal Genetic Data
News

More and more consumers are using services like 23andMe to learn about their genetic blueprint. Included with most of these services is the ability for users to download their "raw" genetic data, which can be further analyzed using third-party apps. But little is known about how and why consumers are using these apps, or about a variety of potential risks associated with these apps, until now.
