Beyond Big Data

We’ve all seen and experienced the benefits that Big Data have brought to machine learning. Computers have become good at tasks like understanding human language and interpreting images – self-driving cars are arguably one of the most impressive examples.

Big Data mean that you have millions, if not billions, of observations and for each observation you have a manageable amount of data. For instance, when data scientists analyse Twitter data they have hundreds of millions of tweets; however, each tweet is less than 280 characters. In a nutshell, Big Data are when you want to learn something simple and you have an abundance of examples.

Most machine learning techniques work more efficiently when Big Data are provided. The availability of Big Data can sometimes eclipse the algorithms used. You might know the Modified National Institute of Standards and Technology data – they’re a large number of images (around 50,000) of hand-written digits (zero to nine) and tons of machine learning tutorials use this data set. Even the most basic machine learning models can identify 97% of the digits correctly. With complicated deep nets, you get up to 99.7% accuracy – showing how the most sophisticated artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm provides a whopping 2.7% increase.

Finding the Right End-to-End Safety Solution for Your Needs

Bioclinica

With upcoming changes, including the implementation of the International Conference on Harmonisation (ICH) E2B(R3) Electronic Transmission of Individual Case Safety Report and Identification of Medicinal Products (IDMP) standards, the current state of safety reporting can be confusing. Your existing safety system may not be flexible enough to accommodate these changing regulations, which are still moving targets regarding the details needed for a comprehensive solution with the right level of processes, company-to-company integrations and finalized regional rules.
