The amount of data available internally and externally is increasing at an unprecedented rate.

Structured data (about 20% of all data) is historically well managed with solutions such as LIMS, ELN, SAR (Structure-Activity-Relationship) database, and many others.

But how to effectively manage the remaining 80% of unstructured data (report, document, literature, patent, ...) and access and extract valuable information for the decision-making process [in life science companies]?

In this workshop, DEXSTR will present how Inquiro, a scientific software combining Search engine and Artificial Intelligence, is used in a digital library project for R&D and Intellectual property departments. Thanks to Inquiro, the customer can access from the Inquiro portal its legacy, current, and also public data, thus increasing the efficiency of his daily work.

In an era where R&D activities are increasingly challenged and distributed remotely, all the legacy knowledge is captured, enhanced, and made available for the entire company

Who should benefit

Decision maker in R&D, Data Management, Data scientist, Project manager who needs to benefit of the existing in-house scientific knowledge
