Are advanced technologies, e.g., Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML), taking over Pharma, Life Science, the world as we know it? Is it safe to let algorithms make decisions for us, our Subjects in a clinical trial, for doctors prescribing our products to patients, or is it just too risky at present? When will the risks be acceptable to ensure safety and efficacy? How can software be a medical device (SaaMD)? What role will we play as industry experts, or will technology replace us?
In this presentation Steve Thompson will provide answers and predictions for all the above. You may be surprised to hear what they are, and some may be ominous.
