“Floodlight and Searchlight: Innovative Software for Machine Learning Assisted Data Reduction and Pattern Analysis,” Kristin Favela

Recent advances in high-resolution mass spectrometry have benefited many fields with an abundance of data, including exposomics, metabolomics and forensics. However, a major bottleneck exists in data processing and review, and review quality may differ from analyst to analyst. Samples in non-targeted analysis experiments may have upwards of thousands of compounds, some of which are not present in any available mass spectrometry library and require characterization. With a lack of automated high-throughput screening methods available, tradeoffs must be made in regard to which samples can be investigated using a non-targeted based workflow, resulting in unavoidable uncertainty. This work aims to address this gap in available high-throughput screening technologies and subsequent pattern analysis for gas-chromatography-based non-targeted analysis methods.​

2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. CDT

"Artificial Intelligence for Signal Quality Review​" LIVE presentation!

Artificial Intelligence-based tools can accelerate high-throughput Non-Targeted Analysis (NTA). Learn about the AI-based Floodlight™ cheminformatics tool. See a brief presentation, a live demo, and have your questions answered by the development team to learn how you can remove obstacles to your GCxGC NTA workflows!

Monday, June 1 - Friday, June 12

Artificial Intelligence is the new superpower for high-throughput GCxGC mass spectrometry workflows. Learn more in a recorded ten-minute presentation by Michael Hartnett that we will have posted in our booth.​
