Pistoia Alliance’s Centre of Excellence (CoE) for Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning (AI/ML) in Life Sciences and the FAIR Implementation for Life Science industry project are planning a joint workshop in Boston on Tuesday, October 22nd 2019. It will allow our communities to meet, share ideas and agree on action plans.
FAIR Implementation Workshop:
- Common challenges and solution brainstorming for FAIR Implementation by pharma/biotech and vendors
- How these potential solutions might relate to the FAIR Implementation process and the FAIR Toolkit
