KFBIO Accelerates Cancer Detection Workloads by 8.4X

Cervical cancer is the fourth most frequent cancer in women with an estimated 570,000 new cases in 2018. Early diagnosis through Papanicolaou (Pap) screening along with treatment significantly improve the chances of patient survival. KFBIO had an effective DL solution for scanning liquid-based cytology (LBC)-based cervical cancer specimens, but wanted higher performance to complete scanning faster. KFBIO integrated the Intel® Optimization for TensorFlow* and Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ Toolkit, improving in inference performance by 8.4X.

Learn more about this solution Improved Netrin Molecular Property Predictor Performance > 2X with Intel Technology’s Netrin Molecular Property Predictor (MPP) is an AI-based tool for exposing the structure-property relationships of molecules, including Netrins, and uses graph convolutional deep neural networks (GCNNs) to make predictions about interactions between molecules and target proteins. By running on 2nd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors with optimized algorithms, saw training accelerated by up to 2.1X which reduces costs and drug development time.
