“We look forward to sharing our solutions that converge AI technology and simulation, a new paradigm for manufacturing bio, and further expand our business scope as a company specializing in AI,” said Eunha Yu, Altair Korea branch manager.

On April 19, on the third floor of KINTEX, Altair engineer Mikyung Yang will present a talk on “Digital Twin of Pharmaceutical Process,” where he will explain how to optimize pharmaceutical process and accumulated resources and leverage a data analysis platform that can utilize accumulated data.

As more than 75% of pharmaceuticals are powder formulations, Altair plans to expand its business in the Korean pharmaceutical market by highlighting the need for fine powder process optimization technology. At the event, Altair will share insight into Altair EDEM, a particulate powder simulation widely used by global pharmaceutical companies.

In addition, data analytics solutions that utilize data and AI technology in the pharmaceutical bio industry will be introduced including Altair SLC which runs programs written in SAS language syntax without translation and without needing to license third-party products. Altair SLC’s built-in SAS language compiler runs SAS language and SQL code and utilizes Python and R compilers to run Python and R code and exchange SAS language datasets, Pandas, and R data frames. Altair RapidMiner, Altair’s data analytics and AI platform, will also be showcased, which includes massive data preparation, machine learning (ML), and visualization technologies.

AI technology is attracting attention as a technology that can reduce the cycle and cost of drug development, but it is difficult to secure a workforce with both an understanding of pharmaceutical manufacturing and AI technology capabilities. Altair’s Center of Excellence (CoE) gives individuals, teams, and organizations the power to understand and implement data principles, tools, and approaches alongside Altair’s experts. It is also a holistic, multi-faceted, continuous approach to learning and support that upskills anyone to the point where they can utilize basic data analysis and data science skills and techniques, even if they don’t have a data background.
