Yellow Messenger

Yellow Messenger: AI-Optimized for Responsive Intelligence

Learn how Yellow Messenger needed its virtual assistant to inference an intent classification model in under 100 ms to provide customers with optimal experiences. Optimizing Yellow Messenger’s intent classification model on 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors reduced inferencing time to less than 100 ms. Optimization cuts latency and speeds throughput, delivering real-time, intelligent responses for optimal customer experiences.


Nordigen’s Optimized XGBoost Algorithms Run 1.4X Faster

Discover how accelerating tuning on 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors allowed Nordigen to reduce the hyperparameter tuning time for their XGBoost model (part of the Scoring Insights product suite) in order to streamline their model search efforts. Nordigen was able to expand the parameter space and even run faster on 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors.

Winning Health

Winning Health’s Machine Learning-Based Bone Age Assessment (BAA) Solution Eases Clinician Workloads

Bone Age Assessment (BAA) is a very important topic in the evaluation of biological maturity of children. A bone age study helps doctors estimate the maturity of a child's skeletal system and is often requested by pediatricians and endocrinologists for comparison with chronological age for diagnosing diseases. Learn how Intel optimizations of Winning Health’s bone age assessment model helped greatly reduce image analysis time enabling large scalability of SaaS solution for hospitals and clinicians on cloud platforms.


MaxQ ACCIPIO - Solution Architecture and Design White Paper

ACCIPIO is an innovative software device designed to be installed within healthcare facilities’ radiology networks to identify and prioritize Non-contrast head CT (NCCT) scans based on algorithmically identified findings of acute intracranial hemorrhage (aICH). Learn how MaxQ AI chose Intel AI technologies for cost-effective performance in a flexible and easily managed platform and discover how optimizations for Intel Architecture produced a 3x improvement in the image processing time for Accipio Ix without compromising accuracy.
