Significant efforts are being made within the life sciences sector to ensure that data is structured properly. Unless data is structured, it cannot be found (discovered), queried (integrated) or used for analysis or interpretation. This session will outline the role of AI/ML (artificial intelligence/ machine learning) in both handling and making sense of unstructured data. The panel will discuss why the requirements for manually structured data will rapidly dissipate as automation takes hold, the importance of curated ontologies and/or metadata vocabularies to drive progress, and achieving the correct process for handling unstructured data.
