The John Snow Labs Healthcare AI Platform including the award-winning Spark NLP library is heavily optimized by taking advantage of Intel’s latest deep learning hardware & software innovations and is geared towards high-compliance industries like healthcare, life sciences, and financial systems. Being Kubernetes-based, it is able to run and scale anywhere – including any of the major cloud providers as well as on-premise. The platform supports the end-to-end AI lifecycle: from data integration & wrangling, through model development by a collaborating team of data scientists, to model deployment & operations.
The AI platform places a heavy emphasis on security, privacy, and compliance controls that are required when data science work must happen on personal health information (PHI) or other highly sensitive data. It has been vetted extensively by multiple security & compliance teams for its fit to develop, serve, and operate sensitive ML, DL, and NLP models in production.
As a result of its unique set of capabilities, the AI Platform has been adopted by a number of Fortune 500 companies who use it as the basis of their own enterprise AI platform: by extending, branding, and integrating it into the rest of their software architecture. The platform is also adopted by smaller companies who need to get to market fast with a proven, end-to-end solution.
John Snow Labs’ AI Platform and Spark NLP for Healthcare have been optimized to take advantage of Intel’s current AI offerings across hardware and software. These optimizations help achieve state-of-the-art accuracy on common natural language processing tasks like named entity recognition, entity resolution, and de-identification. NLP pipelines can be built and run in the AI platform using Python, Scala, or Java and scale effectively to leverage a cluster for both training and inference tasks.
This AI Platform can be deployed on a new cluster in as little as two hours. The John Snow Labs team bundles it with personalized onboarding sessions, that includes training as well as design & architecture sessions. Customers then have access to an ever-improving AI toolset:
“Our customers consider us not just as a software provider but also as a managed service – that continuously keeps track of the fast-evolving AI landscape and adds the best innovations to their toolbox. Every quarter the definition of an AI platform keeps expanding and our product keeps up with it” explained Ali Naqvi, AI Platform product manager at John Snow Labs.
John Snow Labs firmly believes that AI will have a tremendous impact on 21st century healthcare, life science, and human well-being. With this strong conviction, we’re excited to help you break new ground and realize the potential of AI in the years to come.
