Solving the Big Data Dilemma
The constantly growing tsunami of new clinical and life science information stored in disparate databases makes it impossible for clinicians and researchers to keep up-to-date with the knowledge essential to pursue the promises of precision medicine and accelerate research discoveries.
Doctors are focused on treating patients and don’t have time to explore databases. They require easy access to evolving genomic information, so they can quickly and efficiently learn the meaning of variants found in patient DNA tests, and the relationships with diseases and drugs.
The war on SARS-CoV-2 presents doctors and researchers with challenges not seen since the 1917 Spanish Flu killed millions around the world. The evolving COVID-19 variants require constant updates to support vaccine development and patient care.
Sophic’s “Laser” and “Lighthouse”
Sophic provides two systems – SDS 360 and AILANI – each designed to expose clinical and life science information at a micro and macro level of visibility.
SDS 360 (the “Laser”) uses a focused, integrated data model that provides users detailed information about genomic and genetic changes and the relationship to disease and drug outcomes.
Each system provides different users with different use cases with the flexibility to find and learn new knowledge stored in many different sources.
Sophic has worked closely with clinicians and researchers to identify reliable databases that contain high quality, reliable, curated information.
Sophic’s innovative KnowledgeBase saves users considerable time by integrating information from over a dozen sources providing an evidence-based view of relationships between genomic, disease and drug/treatment information.
The Laser – Sophic Disease Surveillance 360 (SDS 360):
The Lighthouse – Artificial Intelligence LANguage Interface (AILANI)
AILANI combines semantic modelling, ontologies, linguistics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms. The search results are based on interrelated meanings of facts. Queries can be expressed in natural language, so AILANI recognizes the original intention and puts the results in context.
AILANI integrates a variety of resources: from in-house documents and proprietary libraries to experiments, genetic sequences, chemical structures and clinical data, to any public data resource or newsfeed. It can seamlessly be connected with existing in-house infrastructures to help better leverage the tacit knowledge that is hidden in the data. By integrating these resources – from decades-old data to the latest free-form text news streams – AILANI enables real-time semantic analysis of breaking news with respect to specific customer data and information sources.
Alliance – Sophic – Biomax Innovation Team:
Sophic Alliance Inc. and Biomax Informatics AG have been business partners for 20 years and have collaborated on a wide range of advanced technology, government and commercial science, and health information projects.
Recently, Sophic has focused on configuring and implementing Sophic’s SDS 360 (Sophic Disease Surveillance) Genomic Medicine Education System for the largest hospital system in the world. At the same time, Biomax configured their AILANI system to support the European Union PREPARE Project (EU-funded Platform foR European Preparedness Against (Re-) emerging Epidemics) for COVID-19. Now, these complementary advanced technology systems are available in the US and Europe.
