Hasta la vista, maybe? Terminating the Hollywood view of AI in pharma

Hasta la vista, maybe? Terminating the Hollywood view of AI in pharma

Marketing Director Julie Denny was recently interviewed by PME Magazine about the use of artificial intelligence in pharma marketing and market research.

Rumours that robots will eventually wipe out humans are the futuristic stuff of Hollywood blockbusters. The real-world story arc is much more uplifting but no less dramatic. When a homeless man in central England was crushed to death by a compaction unit as he slept in the dustbin in 2013, it triggered a response from the UK waste management industry that now sees many refuse trucks fitted with senor technology to detect people in bins.

Fast forward six years and we've now got 'robot doctors' detecting cancers, smart remote monitoring systems managing patients miles from their homes and algorithm-led technologies predicting long-term health based on individuals' DNA. The application of AI in health isn't science fiction, it's happening fast - and it’s positively disrupting patient care.
