Linguamatics I2E recognized for its unique and dynamic approach to meeting specific user needs across the industry

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Nov 14, 2018 — Based on its recent analysis of the global natural language processing (NLP) in life sciences Artificial Intelligence (AI) market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Linguamatics with the 2018 Global Product Leadership Award for its industry-leading I2E NLP text mining platform. This intelligent solution generates insights from a wide range of unstructured and semi-structured data, empowering clients to efficiently integrate AI into their operations.

"I2E's data-driven query development approach ensures reliable results even where there is no annotated training data available. It can obtain actionable results from unstructured data up to 1,000 times faster than the traditional keyword-based research," said Kamaljit Behera, industry analyst for Frost & Sullivan. "Linguamatics’ user-focused approach in product development differentiates its solutions from competitor products. For example, Linguamatics has also created a separate interface for less experienced users, allowing them to find and use optimized queries that have been previously created and published, thus making it easy for new users to access the platform’s power for their application areas. Furthermore, the platform employs intuitive reporting to present extracted information in a structured form."


This month, over 100 life science and healthcare informatics professionals met at the Linguamatics Text Mining Summit 2018 in Portsmouth, NH.

Attendees from multiple pharma companies presented valuable new use cases on how they are using Linguamatics I2E’s Natural Language Processing (NLP)-based AI technology to solve big data challenges from bench to bedside – mining unstructured real world data for rapid reporting of patient trends; discovery of new therapeutic indications of drug targets; developing novel biologics; and supporting risk management and drug safety.

Presenters from healthcare shared how they unlock insights by mining Electronic Health Records (EHRs) in some of the most innovative areas in healthcare today - including real world evidence for clinical outcomes; streamlining prior authorization and medical review workflows; and identifying clinical care gaps.
