Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Powered Signal Management Training: A Course for Visionaries – Unlocking the Potential of AI and ML in Drug Safety –

The “Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Powered Signal Management Training Course” conference has been added to’s offering.

The quest to find precise evidence to answer complex questions from biomedicine and Healthcare for Drug Safety has brought us to a major crossroads.

With the exponential growth of biomedical knowledge, it is imperative that we teach machines and also learn from them. Data (Information), Connection (Knowledge) and the Tools (Software) designed to deliver these answers is the future of Drug Safety.

This course will prepare you to navigate the multiverse of AI, ML and Deep Learning from a drug safety perspective with an easily understandable and practical approach.

It will provide an excellent opportunity to discuss with an expert in this field the potential use of AI and ML in pharmacovigilance and risk management systems, and will include two demonstrations of AI-powered systems for PV management.

The course will not only provide you with a window but a door to the future landscape of pharmacovigilance and risk management.
