The Breakthrough Change Accelerator has two models for business challenges: 

Public Challenges

  • Pfizer business challenge that is ripe for artificial intelligence and machine learning based solution
  • Posted on this website and open to innovative collaborators to review and participate in the challenge
     

Private Challenges

  • Pfizer business challenge that is ripe for artificial intelligence and machine learning based solution
  • Requires access to relevant Pfizer business data
  • Innovative collaborators are specifically invited by Pfizer to participate to help solve the business challenge.

What you’ll need:

  • Relevant business domain expertise 
  • Experience with common data science tools
  • The ability to work in a cloud- based environment
  • Ability to commit subject matter experts and data scientists for the duration of the business challenge 
  • Meet, and agree to, relevant requirements for each Pfizer business challenge

What you’ll get:

  • Access to relevant data for the business challenge and an opportunity to demonstrate your solution capability 
  • Clear evaluation criteria used by Pfizer to assess your solution
  • Potential future collaboration for a production-scale solution

How it works

  • 1
    step-icon-1
    We invite all collaborators—everyone from small start-ups, to academic institutions, to large technology companies—to help solve the challenge

    We’ll ask you to commit to participate for the full duration of the business challenge (usually over several weeks but may vary depending on scope and complexity).

  • 2
    step-icon-2
    We give select collaborators access to a Data Science working environment with robust data science tools and relevant business data to allow you to demonstrate your solution capability
  • 4
    step-icon-4
    Finally, we review our collaborators’ solutions, assess the solutions against the evaluation criteria, and look to engage with the top finalists to scope out the effort for a production scale solution

Pfizer’s Breakthrough Change Accelerator is a competitive incubation sandbox created to power rapid and robust machine learning in a secure environment. We invite innovators to collaborate on challenges using large volumes of relevant datasets to create novel technology solutions that speed up development of medicines to patients.
