Sorcero CTO and Co-founder Walter Bender to Lead Artificial Intelligence Primer at DIA 2022 Global Annual Meeting

On June 22, life sciences professionals will get a step-by-step guide to artificial intelligence from MIT Media Lab Founder and Sorcero CTO and Co-founder Walter Bender 

Washington, DC, and Cambridge, MA – June 16, 2022 - Sorcero, the leading Omnichannel Analytics Platform for Life Sciences, today announced that CTO and Co-founder Walter Bender will host a Content Hub at the DIA 2022 Global Annual Meeting titled, “Separating the Artificial Intelligence (AI) Hype from Reality: A Primer on NLP (Natural Language Processing).”

Today, there are many rising claims about AI and its capabilities. These proclamations have made it harder for non-technical experts to distinguish reality from fiction. Many remain uncertain about how this technology functions or how it can be applied to life sciences workflows. In this DIA 2022 Content Hub, MIT Media Lab founder and Sorcero CTO Walter Bender and Regulatory & Clinical Operations Expert Sheila Mahoney-Jewels MBA will guide life science professionals through these topics with a step-by-step educational primer on AI. 

Content Hub Goals: Step-by-Step Guide to AI for the Life Sciences

The goal of this session is to empower life science professionals with an informative “under the hood” look at AI in order to engage in deeper discussions with IT departments, and in turn, craft and apply high-impact solutions to their workflows. Attendees will come away with a better understanding of the core capabilities of AI and how it can be used to enhance productivity, generate evidence, and minimize risk.
