Featured Speakers 2018

Agenda Highlights 2018

Actionable insights on these topics and more:

  • FDA Vision
    As we look to the future of the pharmaceutical and medical device industries, FDA and industry must continue to work together to move beyond our current paradigms of discovery, research and development and operations. FDA is actively engaged in exploring the power of artificial intelligence on many fronts. Walk away with an understanding of FDA’s vision for the use of AI across the industry.
  • Foundation of AI
    Continue to deepen your understanding of “how it works” through foundational topics that could include “how machine learning works,” “how to validate AI,” “how natural language processing works,” and “what is naturals language generation?”. These types of topics will open your mind as to how your organization can take advantage of the power of AI even beyond how it is being used today. Be the champion to advance your company!
  • AI in Action
    What is AI? How are AI systems built? How do we unpack knowledge from AI algorithms? Far from being indecipherable “black boxes,” you will instead find that building AI systems follows a replicable and intuitive process that is especially suited for implementation across the industry. Be confident in how your organization can implement AI! 
  • Live Demo AI Exhibition
    Participants will be guided through a fast-paced AI demonstration exhibition that will give each person an opportunity to see how artificial intelligence really works. These small-group demos also allow participants to ask lots of questions. Don’t miss this opportunity “ask the experts”!

AI Realized. The Xavier Artificial Intelligence Initiative presents AI Summit 2019, August 20-22. Be a part of the future of our industry by:

  • Understanding the current use of AI in the medical device and pharma industries
  • Exploring cutting-edge possibilities of how the power of AI can be applied to solve your challenges in quality, regulatory, and supply chain
  • Engaging in AI industry-wide solution discussion sessions
  • Joining an AI Solution Team during the summit and beyond
  • Shaping the future of our industry…now

Register now for the AI Summit 2019, happening August 20-22.

AI could help improve our oversight and accelerate bringing products to market. It has the potential to fill in the gaps that we can not see or get to in our current approach/paradigm.
— Cisco Vicenty, Program Manager – Case for Quality, CDRH, FDA

Who Should Attend

  • Medical Device professionals
  • Pharmaceutical professionals
  • Quality operations, regulatory affairs and supply chain professionals
  • AI experts
  • AI end users
  • Those who are interested in AI applications, but are not versed in AI
  • Small, medium and large organizations
  • Global regulators

What Can We Do Together?

Here are just a few examples:

AI holds enormous promise for the future of medicine, and we’re actively developing a new regulatory framework to promote innovation in this space and support the use of AI-based technologies.
— Scott Gottlieb, M.D., FDA Commissioner
  1. Continuous Audit System: Develop an expert process to audit all of your documents constantly, instead of conducting an annual audit on 2% of your documents. Start by interviewing expert auditors and investigators to identify their “if/then” thought process on how they conduct audits. Move from “audit findings” to predicting areas of failure.
  2. Predicting Product Failure: Fold in as much data and variables as you can surrounding your production process to identify sources of influence on your product quality that weren’t previously realized (think of incoming variables, facility, human, time of year, supply base, stock prices, every specification range, etc.). Work together to identify which common and uncommon variables could be included.
  3. True Root Cause: Identify triggers in your investigations and CAPA documents that could signal deeper root causes and trends that have not been recognized, then develop a consistent process for root cause identification across your organization. Output could include a standard list of root causes and related failures for industry use.
  4. Robust Supplier Selection and Monitoring: Develop a process to scan external information related to suppliers during the due diligence processprior to signing a contract. Then continue monitoring external information on your supplier’s performance with other clients that could impact your products. Identify what types of information and sources to scan.

What If My Company is Small or Has Not Started With AI?

  • All of the examples above can benefit every company, since each example can be implemented by humans. The output of our work will identify successful practices from industry-wide experts that can be used by humans in all organizations. The next step would be to have those practices augmented through the power of AI.
  • The work we will accomplish together will help some companies understand the criticality of moving beyond paper-based systems to simple electronic systems, let alone implementing AI. Humans cannot reasonably identify trends and assess large amounts of information if the information is contained on paper, thus exposing your patients and company to unidentified risk.
  • If your company is ready to start with AI, the systems can be developed on your own, you can hire consultants, or you can contract with solution providers. Since all of those examples can be scaled to what you are ready for, the power of AI is within your reach...today.
