BioProcess International West

Be sure to catch Tim Gardner's presentation in Technology Workshop 4: "Laboratory Data to Machine Learning in 30 seconds" on Tuesday, March 20th at 2:50pm.

Today's breakthroughs lie deep in the midst of complex, multivariate data sets. Experimental anomalies and fundamental discoveries often go unnoticed because they are buried in uninterpretable spreadsheets, inaccessible databases, or excessive experimental noise. The cloud-based Riffyn software structures and links experimental designs and measurement data for analysis within seconds after it is collected in the lab.  Riffyn will demonstrate how biotech companies are using this capability to identify unexpected correlations, uncover root causes of error, and deliver right-first-time technology scale-up.

Buried in Data, Starving for Information: How measurement noise is blocking scientific progress.

Timothy S. Gardner, Founder/CEO

Today's breakthroughs lie deep in the midst of complex, multivariate data sets. Yet, experimental anomalies and fundamental discoveries often go unnoticed because they are buried in uninterpretable spreadsheets, inaccessible databases, or excessive experimental noise. Moreover, our educational system is failing to train our scientists in fundamental principles of experimental design, measurement systems analysis, and quality. The result is missed opportunities for scientific discovery, lost time chasing experimental artifacts, and stunted learning cycles. We will illustrate these issues with examples from present day research, and outline solutions to these problems derived from 100 years of statistical science and manufacturing quality principles.
