Our latest version of I2E includes improvements that make it easier to integrate the tool into your organization and process your internal documents, as well as the usual usability enhancements and under-the-hood modifications.

I2E 5.3.1 supports Single Sign-On (SSO) by connecting with Federated Authenticated Systems such as ADFS and Shibboleth. This means that you can be authenticated in one system and then seamlessly log into the I2E client without prompting for your credentials. If you are not already logged in via another system, I2E will initiate the login process via a redirect to a special web page.

We’ve improved the hit highlighting in our Excel results format (figure 1): terms from your search use the same colors for each column in your results and the colors are consistent across the I2E Query Editor, HTML results and highlighted cache documents.

A good example of recent continual improvement in I2E is the Class Chooser. In recent releases, we have increased search speed, added as-you-type class suggestions and, in I2E 5.3.1, we’ve added additional information for each class match to show which Ontology the term is from (figure 2). This helps to quickly review your results to get to your correct match(es), particularly when you’re using a term that could occur in different ontologies.


The latest release of Linguamatics AI Natural Language Processing (NLP) text mining software, I2E 5.3, has a number of new features and improvements for creating simple open queries to questions that use advanced linguistic analytics to reveal relevant results faster, with better precision and recall.

Most of the out-of-the-box I2E 5.3 Resources queries, such as finding all variations of subject-relation-object patterns, or gene-mutation-disease associations, can now be embedded within other queries, allowing you to further constrain your extracted relationships.

In I2E 5.3, when you start typing in the class chooser, it will automatically suggest the top 20 classes with that prefix (Figure 1) across all of your terminologies. If you want more suggestions, with our new auto-suggestion feature, you can “Resume” your search to match more terms.

For fresh installations, I2E 5.3 Enterprise is now configured to use SSL (TLS) by default. This ensures that all communication is encrypted and nothing, including user credentials, is sent through the network in the clear. 


Scientific search solution recognized as a breakthrough AI product that democratizes the power of NLP for pharma and biotech

Cambridge, England and Boston, USA — May 23, 2018 — Linguamatics, the leading natural language processing (NLP) text analytics provider, today announced that Bio-IT World has awarded Linguamatics the Best of Show Judges’ Prize for Linguamatics iScite 2.0, a software-as-a-service AI scientific search application that puts the power of text analytics directly into the hands of researchers and clinicians. iScite was one of 46 products considered for this prestigious award at last week’s Bio-IT World Conference & Expo in Boston.

Bio-IT World’s Best of Show Awards Program recognizes the most innovative product solutions for the life science industry, as judged by a panel of experts from academia, industry, pharma and biotech. During the May 16 awards ceremony, iScite was applauded as a product that had “blown away” the judges, by putting “big pharma power into the hands of the small guy”. Judges also recognized iScite for “the natural language processing power it delivers at a very affordable price point” and issued a challenge to the Bio-IT community to embrace the tool to “see what a whole community of really smart people can accomplish with it.”


New release broadens ETL and enterprise workflow applications in healthcare and life science

Cambridge, England and Boston, USA — May 15, 2018 — Linguamatics, the leading natural language processing (NLP) text analytics provider, today announced the latest release of its I2E AMP platform to automate the discovery of critical insights from text using NLP.

The I2E Asynchronous Messaging Pipeline (AMP) platform delivers high-throughput, fault tolerant workflow management for real-time document and record processing, addressing the NLP text-mining and ETL (extract transform load) requirements for healthcare and life science organizations of all sizes by allowing users to plug I2E into enterprise workflows and rapidly process streams of data at scale.

I2E AMP 2.0 includes enhanced functionality to speed overall throughput and performance, sophisticated pre- and post-processing capabilities, a Web GUI to simplify the set-up of initial workflows, and new AMP Agents for smarter load balancing, easier deployment, and optimized I2E management.

 “I2E’s flexible NLP platform goes far beyond traditional entity mark-up, providing semantically enriched data that normalizes concepts and relationships based on the relevant context,” said David Milward, chief technology officer for Linguamatics. “With AMP, clients now have an enterprise class, high-throughput solution that provides secure, fault-tolerant, scalable, and real-time ETL from unstructured text to structured data.”


Linguamatics I2E 5.2.0 was released at the beginning of October with availability for Enterprise and OnDemand users. It was hot on the heels of our I2E 5.1 release: we’re speeding the I2E release cycle up to release quarterly, so that you can access the latest I2E features faster.

With I2E 5.2.0, your indexes and queries are now organized in trees, which combine content stored locally and remotely i.e. on the cloud. And now it’s easier to find them: the tree views are dynamically filtered when you type the name of your index or query into the search box.

Our HTML results have had a refresh! Making it easier for you to quickly review your results and only show more advanced options when you need them.

Getting to the correct classes quickly is a key part of any query building, so in I2E 5.2.0, we made class matching up to 5x faster across I2E Pro, I2E Express, web portals and custom interfaces.

I2E 5.2.0 was launched at TMS, and everyone who took part in the workshops got a chance to use these new features and improvements in sessions such as the Query Hackathon and Leveraging New I2E Features.
