Machine Learning is believed to be a game changer for industry, especially by big Pharma as reflected by significant investments. Starting from an introduction to machine learning, this contribution outlines the current machine learning status for process development with examples, provides future directions towards more global high-value machine learning centric development, concepts to engage people in the digital evolution and ideas for machine learning centric business models.

Presented by Moritz von Stosch, PhD, Senior Manager, Technical R&D, GlaxoSmithKline Vaccines

Moritz von Stosch works as Senior Manager at Technical R&D of GSK Biologicals, Belgium. He is a process systems engineer by education with a Diplom in Chemical Engineering from the RWTH-Aachen University and PhD in Biochemical Engineering from the University of Porto.
