IBM Watson for Drug Discovery helps researchers and organizations discover potential new drug targets and additional drug indications. IBM’s cloud-based, enterprise solution analyzes scientific knowledge and data to reveal patterns and connections that accelerate the formation of new hypotheses, increasing the likelihood and pace of scientific breakthroughs.
Transform Your Process
The IBM Watson for Drug Discovery platform can collect, normalize and curate both structured and unstructured data to help you identify hidden patterns. The Watson cognitive platform starts by looking broadly and deeply at your diverse data to identify domain entities like genes, drugs and diseases. It then takes a deep dive to further organize and understand the domain you’re researching into relevant ontologies. These two analyses combine to create a holistic understanding of the known relationships and pathways, which Watson then uses to identify new potential areas of exploration that can help generate evidence-based hypotheses.
Accelerate Drug Discovery
IBM Watson for Drug Discovery is designed specifically for the life sciences domain. Our Natural Language Processing (NLP) enables the Watson Cognitive Platform to read and understand the relevant literature from the corpus of nearly 31 million sources, and detect connections and patterns that humans may not see. Predictive models are then applied to evaluate the available content to rank research targets and help you generate and prioritize hypotheses. Finally, data visualization helps you turn ideas into action by mapping these detected connections between entities, which can then be filtered for easier learning and application.
Fuel Your Pipeline
IBM Watson for Drug Discovery provides the potential for a more consistent, higher velocity pipeline. Information that was once siloed and invisible is now accessible through IBM Watson for Drug Discovery and visually presented, with context and supporting evidence to generate more actionable hypotheses. Researchers no longer have to rely on serendipity, they can quickly and easily look broadly and deeply into their topic of choice, resulting in more informed decisions. IBM Watson for Drug Discovery has been shown to detect emerging targets and trends in literature.
