I2E 4.1 opens up new opportunities for connecting actionable insights from unstructured data across diverse cloud and enterprise-based content silos

(Cambridge, England and Boston, USA – September 19, 2013 ) -Linguamatics, the leader in natural language processing-based text mining and analytics, is pleased to announce the latest release of its award-winning software platform, I2E. Version 4.1 provides enhancements in a number of key areas, including more streamlined access to content through linking enterprise servers with content servers in the cloud, and enhanced chemical querying capabilities.

I2E’s new Linked Server functionality facilitates easier access to text mining across different content silos wherever they might be located, whether in-house data or content served from the cloud, including from Linguamatics’ own I2EOnDemand platform. This federated approach will enable faster linking of extracted information from diverse unstructured data sources such as scientific literature, clinical data, patents and in-house information, leading to increased speed to insight.

I2E’s enhanced chemical querying capability introduces faster, more scalable substructure and similarity searching within the context of sophisticated natural language queries, and integrates chemical structure drawing, using chemistry components from ChemAxon.

Amongst other product enhancements, index optimization delivers reductions in index sizes of around 30%, leading to savings in storage costs. This is particularly significant as customers scale up their enterprise text mining operations to deal with the challenges of big data.


Natural Language Processing (NLP), big data and precision medicine are three of the hottest topics in healthcare at the moment and consequently attracted a large audience to the first NLP & Big Data Symposium, focussed on precision medicine.

The event took place on August 27th, hosted at the new UCSF site at Mission Bay in San Francisco and sponsored by Linguamatics and UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Over 75 delegates came to hear the latest insights and projects from some of the West Coast’s leading institutions including Kaiser Permanente, Oracle, Huntsman Cancer Institute and UCSF.

The event was held in the midst of an explosion in new building development to house the latest in medical research and informatics, something that big data will be at the heart of.

Linguamatics and UCSF recognized the need for a meeting on NLP in the west and put together an exciting program that clearly caught the imagination of many groups in the area.
