AWS re:Invent 2018 is Here!  Are You Ready?

AWS re:Invent 2018 is Here!  Are You Ready?

 

Bigfinite is excited to announce that we will be attending the 2018 AWS re:Invent!  For the past three years, we have attended the annual conference and every year this event has continued to gain tremendous growth and take the city by storm.  Re:Invent is the largest cloud computing event in the world and a great event to learn more about the latest developments, technologies, and products in the AWS community.

Bigfinite built its GxP AI manufacturing platform entirely using AWS technologies. A 100% serverless architecture, leveraging AI and ML functionalities on AWS, with Biopharma algorithms developed by Bigfinite using its 30 years of experience helping the Pharmaceutical and Biotech industry to optimize their manufacturing processes. A SaaS platform, using the latest technologies while maintaining compliance.

With seven main venues across the Las Vegas Strip (Aria, Bellagio, MGM, Mirage, Vdara, Encore, and the Venetian) and over 40,000 people expected to attend, it will feel a bit overwhelming so we encourage you to prepare and arrive with a plan on how you will spend your week in Vegas.  From hackathons and boot camps to workshops and after-hours networking opportunities, there are numerous sessions to try.

In light of the event this week, we have prepared a list to help you get ready. If this is your first time attending, we suggest downloading the AWS mobile application to help navigate through the sessions and manage your schedule.  

    • Bring comfortable shoes: the distance is deceiving in Las Vegas and there will be a lot of walking from session to session so bring shoes that are comfortable.
    • Time management: because the event is very large, time is not always on your side.  Spreading across seven different venues and moving in large crowds is difficult, so make sure to give yourself at least 15-20 minutes before each session and do not book back-to-back meetings.
    • Keynotes:  don’t miss out on keynotes!  An important part of the event are the keynotes, this is when AWS CTO Werner Vogels discusses trends and changes and exhibitors get to learn the new products and big new features AWS will be releasing.
    • Take care of yourself: with all the activities and events, it is very easy to lose track of time.  Remember to hydrate regularly, snack often, and get enough sleep.

 

Hope to see everyone there!

AI Algorithm Qualification

Pharmaceuticals and Biotech companies have no doubt that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is here to stay. Nonetheless, the opportunities AI technology offers are developing at a slow pace in a rather conservative manufacturing industry, aimed at managing production risks under controls that are subject to strong regulations. Fear of change? Risk aversion? Likely not.

2019 Xavier University AI Summit Reflections – Two Industries Ready for Change

Now that the dust has settled from the Xavier University AI Summit and our team is back to business, we’ve had time to process some of the highlights and key takeaways from the exciting event.  In the past few years, there has been a significant increase in the implementation of digital technologies into various industries that subsequently impacted the way we live, travel, and do business.  From driverless cars to 24/7 customer support chatbots, innovation and technology continue to spiral upward and as we’ve entered the 4th industrial revolution, and healthcare + biopharma should be no exception.  The Xavier University AI Summit is a great event that brings together a range of relevant stakeholders with common focus on artificial intelligence (AI).

Bigfinite and NNE Partnership

Bigfinite and NNE announced a strategic partner program agreement to collaborate around accelerating digital transformation within manufacturing operations at the world's leading pharmaceutical and biotech manufacturers. 

Where are Pharma Companies in the Age of Artificial Intelligence?

They say good things come to those who wait; we say good things come to those who wait but only the things left by the visionaries before them.  The pharmaceutical industry has long been known to lag in the adoption of new technology due to strong regulations. Even though regulators have recently begun to open up to several new ‘big data’ or pharma 4.0 technologies - the question remains, if pharma companies are doing the same?  In 2016, the European Pharmacopoeia 9.0 in Chapter 5.21 announced that neural networks (NN) and support vector machines (SVM) are valid chemometric techniques for processing analytical data sets. 

Data Scientist 4.0 – Bridging the World of Manufacturing and Data

Since the announcement of the 4th Industrial Revolution in 2011, multitudes of emerging technologies have transpired around “Industry 4.0”. Technologies such as digital twins, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), and cyber-physical systems have come into the scene as core elements, providing the necessary ingredients for a paradigm shift in manufacturing. Technologies around predictive analytics and artificial intelligence are pioneering new approaches with many use cases including predictive maintenance, autonomous process optimization, and pattern recognition - used to identify potential failures in real-time. Because of this, data science is becoming an invaluable discipline for our industry in order to transform information into knowledge.
