Summary of "Data science tools and applications on the way to Pharma 4.0."

Multiple obstacles are driving the digital transformation of the biopharmaceutical industry. Novel digital techniques, often marketed as 'Pharma 4.0', are thought to solve some long-existing obstacles in the biopharma life cycle. Pharma 4.0 concepts, such as cyberphysical systems and dark factories, require data science tools as technological core components. Here, we review current data science applications at various stages of the bioprocess life cycle, including their scopes and data sources. We are convinced that the scope and usefulness of these tools are currently limited by technical and nontechnical problems experienced during their development and deployment. We suggest that the establishment of development opportunity mind- and toolsets could improve this situation and would be essential cornerstones in the further development of Pharma 4.0 systems.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The science and art of collecting, summarizing, and analyzing data that are subject to random variation. The term is also applied to the data themselves and to the summarization of the data.

Works consisting of an announcement or statement of recent or current events of new data and matters of interest in the field of medicine or science. In some publications, such as "Nature" or "Science," the news reports are substantively written and herald medical and scientific data of vital or controversial importance.

Use of sophisticated analysis tools to sort through, organize, examine, and combine large sets of information.

Research combining mastery in distinct fields or disciplines that apply and exchange tools, concepts, ideas, data methods, or results around a common project.

Information application based on a variety of coding methods to minimize the amount of data to be stored, retrieved, or transmitted. Data compression can be applied to various forms of data, such as images and signals. It is used to reduce costs and increase efficiency in the maintenance of large volumes of data.
