The Era of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Data Science in the Pharmaceutical Industry examines the drug discovery process, assessing how new technologies have improved effectiveness. Artificial intelligence and machine learning are considered the future for a wide range of disciplines and industries, including the pharmaceutical industry. In an environment where producing a single approved drug costs millions and takes many years of rigorous testing prior to its approval, reducing costs and time is of high interest. This book follows the journey that a drug company takes when producing a therapeutic, from the very beginning to ultimately benefitting a patient’s life. This comprehensive resource will be useful to those working in the pharmaceutical industry, but will also be of interest to anyone doing research in chemical biology, computational chemistry, medicinal chemistry and bioinformatics. Demonstrates how the prediction of toxic effects is performed, how to reduce costs in testing compounds, and its use in animal research Written by the industrial teams who are conducting the work, showcasing how the technology has improved and where it should be further improved Targets materials for a better understanding of techniques from different disciplines, thus creating a complete guide
Access to large data sets has led to a paradigm shift in the tourism research landscape. Big data is enabling a new form of knowledge gain, while at the same time shaking the epistemological foundations and requiring new methods and analysis approaches. It allows for interdisciplinary cooperation between computer sciences and social and economic sciences, and complements the traditional research approaches. This book provides a broad basis for the practical application of data science approaches such as machine learning, text mining, social network analysis, and many more, which are essential for interdisciplinary tourism research. Each method is presented in principle, viewed analytically, and its advantages and disadvantages are weighed up and typical fields of application are presented. The correct methodical application is presented with a "how-to" approach, together with code examples, allowing a wider reader base including researchers, practitioners, and students entering the field. The book is a very well-structured introduction to data science – not only in tourism – and its methodological foundations, accompanied by well-chosen practical cases. It underlines an important insight: data are only representations of reality, you need methodological skills and domain background to derive knowledge from them - Hannes Werthner, Vienna University of Technology Roman Egger has accomplished a difficult but necessary task: make clear how data science can practically support and foster travel and tourism research and applications. The book offers a well-taught collection of chapters giving a comprehensive and deep account of AI and data science for tourism - Francesco Ricci, Free University of Bozen-Bolzano This well-structured and easy-to-read book provides a comprehensive overview of data science in tourism. It contributes largely to the methodological repository beyond traditional methods. - Rob Law, University of Macau

The contemporary world lives on the data produced at an unprecedented speed through social networks and the internet of things (IoT). Data has been called the new global currency, and its rise is transforming entire industries, providing a wealth of opportunities. Applied data science research is necessary to derive useful information from big data for the effective and efficient utilization to solve real-world problems. A broad analytical set allied with strong business logic is fundamental in today’s corporations. Organizations work to obtain competitive advantage by analyzing the data produced within and outside their organizational limits to support their decision-making processes. This book aims to provide an overview of the concepts, tools, and techniques behind the fields of data science and artificial intelligence (AI) applied to business and industries. The Handbook of Research on Applied Data Science and Artificial Intelligence in Business and Industry discusses all stages of data science to AI and their application to real problems across industries—from science and engineering to academia and commerce. This book brings together practice and science to build successful data solutions, showing how to uncover hidden patterns and leverage them to improve all aspects of business performance by making sense of data from both web and offline environments. Covering topics including applied AI, consumer behavior analytics, and machine learning, this text is essential for data scientists, IT specialists, managers, executives, software and computer engineers, researchers, practitioners, academicians, and students.
This book is an information packed overview of how to structure a data science career, a data science degree program, and how to hire a data science team, including resources and insights from the authors experience with national and international large-scale data projects as well as industry, academic and government partnerships, education, and workforce. Outlined here are tips and insights into navigating the data ecosystem as it currently stands, including career skills, current training programs, as well as practical hiring help and resources. Also, threaded through the book is the outline of a data ecosystem, as it could ultimately emerge, and how career seekers, training programs, and hiring managers can steer their careers, degree programs, and organizations to align with the broader future of data science. Instead of riding the current wave, the author ultimately seeks to help professionals, programs, and organizations alike prepare a sustainable plan for growth in this ever-changing world of data. The book is divided into three sections, the first “Building Data Careers”, is from the perspective of a potential career seeker interested in a career in data, the second “Building Data Programs” is from the perspective of a newly forming data science degree or training program, and the third “Building Data Talent and Workforce” is from the perspective of a Data and Analytics Hiring Manager. Each is a detailed introduction to the topic with practical steps and professional recommendations. The reason for presenting the book from different points of view is that, in the fast-paced data landscape, it is helpful to each group to more thoroughly understand the desires and challenges of the other. It will, for example, help the career seekers to understand best practices for hiring managers to better position themselves for jobs. It will be invaluable for data training programs to gain the perspective of career seekers, who they want to help and attract as students. Also, hiring managers will not only need data talent to hire, but workforce pipelines that can only come from partnerships with universities, data training programs, and educational experts. The interplay gives a broader perspective from which to build.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is the latest technological evolution which is transforming the global economy and is a major part of the “Fourth Industrial Revolution.” This book covers the meaning, types, subfields and applications of AI, including U.S. governmental policies and regulations, ethical and privacy issues, particularly as they pertain and affect facial recognition programs and the Internet-of Things (IoT). There is a lengthy analysis of bias, AI’s effect on the current and future job market, and how AI precipitated fake news. In addition, the text covers basics of intellectual property rights and how AI will transform their protection. The author then moves on to explore international initiatives from the European Union, China’s New Generation Development Plan, other regional areas, and international conventions. The book concludes with a discussion of super intelligence and the question and applicability of consciousness in machines. The interdisciplinary scope of the text will appeal to any scholars, students and general readers interested in the effects of AI on our society, particularly in the fields of STS, economics, law and politics.
