Advance precision medicine with trusted data and AI solutions
By Bruce Maule | 3 minute read | April 1, 2019
We invite you to join IBM at Bio-IT World Conference and Expo 2019, April 16–18, in Boston, Massachusetts. We are hosting demos and sessions designed to help you deliver on the promise of artificial intelligence (AI) and cloud, cognitive and quantum computing in the field of precision medicine. Register by April 5 to receive a complimentary exhibit hall and keynote session pass.
Advancing precision medicine to improve diagnoses and treatments relies largely on big data coming from various sources and instruments in volumes never seen before. This explosion of data, in the form of large files and complex data types, poses enormous challenges for researchers who need to draw conclusions and take action from the insights they gather.
AI is one way to accelerate drug discovery. It has the ability to reveal hidden patterns and predict novel connections in biomedical data at a scale that human and traditional computing methods cannot achieve. IBM AI solutions are uniquely positioned to help organizations discover new opportunities previously hidden in disconnected data by turning them into meaningful insights that lead to actionable results. Our technologies support some of the largest leading precision medicine initiatives around the globe and help your organization prepare for the next phase of precision medicine.
Engage with our subject-matter experts for demos
Meet our life sciences experts in booth #432 to hear about best practices that are based on real-life examples. To learn more about how your organization can implement IBM AI solutions, visit us at one of these Bio-IT World Conference and Expo sessions:
- Leverage IBM Q—the world’s first integrated Quantum system for business and science. Explore how your organization can benefit from scalable quantum systems and how leading startups are already using this technology to accelerate breakthroughs in the areas of drug discovery and AI.
- Share and transfer large, life sciences data sets with IBM Aspera in the hybrid multicloud world. Learn how you can benefit from our next-generation transfer solutions to send, share, stream and sync large files and data sets more securely and reliably than ever, and at maximum speed across global IP networks.
- Build a foundation for precision medicine and biomedical workloads with high-performance data and AI (HPDA) architecture. Experience new speed and scale records for your genomics, imaging and deep learning workloads with solutions that manage the oceans of data and orchestrate the jungle of applications.
- Accelerate AI Vision deployments and increase productivity with IBM PowerAI Vision and IBM Power Systems—the foundation for the world’s top supercomputers. Train highly accurate models to classify images and detect objects in images and videos using deep learning to help medical practitioners better diagnose tumors and assess responses to treatment.
