How can artificial intelligence in clinical trials transform the Industry

By on Aug 8, 2019 in Interesting

The World of Artificial Intelligence Slowly, artificial intelligence (AI) is introduced in every aspect of our lives, being capable of solving difficult challenges in more than a few very efficacious and quick ways. Nowadays, this technology has even demonstrated its potential to change the clinical trial management process. But how? Artificial Intelligence in Clinical Trials Firstly, AI could be used to create smarter protocol designs, which can exponentially increase the clinical trials´ success rates. Is very common for scientists to use data from prior protocol designs to structure the new ones. However, this often results in poorly programmed trials, leading to excessive costs, deficient data, and other not identified problems that increase the delay of the projects. With artificial intelligence, these issues are reduced to a minimum, being capable of taking the positive and negative aspects of prior clinical trials and making an almost perfect new project, adjusting any matter of concern. In addition, AI is capable of providing success or failure probabilities, patients´ possible response rates, among other important factors. Patient recruitment is another factor that, if not done right, can jeopardize the entire clinical trial. In the present, these recruitment issues produce millions and millions of monetary loses, leading to the shutdown of multiple scientific projects. Using AI, patients are selected comparing their electronic medical records and all sort of data with specific selection criteria, instead of relying only on the doctor’s opinion. In addition, artificial intelligence in clinical trials can also help in data collection and...

In this short article we are going to discuss a specific configuration for Jira to make project management more effective and efficient. Combining Jira boards in a single view Jira provides the ability to create many boards to manage your team and resources. This is key in planning and organizing work load across the teams. Boards are custom and allow you to define queries/filters to your liking. However, one lacking feature with boards is the ability to combine them into one view. Why would you want to combine multiple boards in a single page view? The advantage of combining multiple boards into a single view If you manage multiple teams, sometimes the best thing to do is to create a board for each team. This gives you flexibility to manage each team independently and to track the average velocity per team. However, right of the bat there is an imminent problem; Sprint Planning can get tricky. With each board being isolated, it becomes difficult to see the big picture across all teams in active or future sprints. Unfortunately managing this using Jira alone is a pain in the rear.

For instance, Chrome allows you the possibility to reach the webcam and microphone of a device but only for those websites having specialized a SSL certificate. In order to connect users, they need to identify each other. It can be achieved by using WebSocket technology.   How does it work? For a better understanding, let’s consider an example of a real project in web development. As a basis for the server development, we have NodeJS supplemented by the socket.io while AndularJS has become a basis for front–end development.   Chapter 1: Where can I start? The first thing you need to do during development is to check the browser’s ability to be connected to a device’s media.   setupRTC will help you check the availability of this technology support on a separate OS or browser as well as the possibility to access the media.   startCall is intended to start checking the support of this technology. After that, the initialization will be launched on the client’s side. The socket.io helps generate the ‘callRequest’ on the server.   targetId identifies which user from the database is going to get the connection request. enableSelfVideo is responsible for everything related to the broadcast.
