Pistoia Alliance announces start-up of a Centre of Excellence (CoE) in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML). This development is driven by our desire to support our members in the understanding and pursuit of innovative new AI/ML applications and solutions within Life Sciences R&D & Health.

Project deliverables

We are currently working to establish the steps needed to turn the widespread adoption of AI/ML into a reality. We want to see how the greater community can help the industry overcome many of the obstacles it is currently facing.

Why is this important?

The Pistoia Alliance believes that AI/ML has the potential to transform large aspects of the Life Sciences and Health workflows. On the other hand we believe that this transformation won’t replace the human mind required in the research scenario. Science requires interdisciplinary expertise and judgement that a machine cannot provide.

What will the project achieve?

The Pistoia Alliance is currently working to establish the steps needed to turn the widespread adoption of AI/ML into a reality. We want to see how the greater community can help the industry overcome many of the obstacles it is currently facing.

How will the project do this?

The Centre of Excellence is organising events, webinars, and hackathons, which will cover a range of challenges aimed at kicking off AI projects or prototype AIs. This will help us to work out where the main challenges are, and to establish an adoption strategy that serves these needs. The Pistoia Alliance’s community also provides a virtual and physical co-working space, enabling life science professionals to share best practice and learn how best to apply AI, machine, and deep learning to R&D – wherever they are in the world.
