Valerie Morel, CEO of ONTOFORCE
The partnership between ONTOFORCE and Averbis addresses the challenge of unstructured data sources in the life sciences industry. Despite the wealth of data available, 80% of it is unstructured, making it difficult to extract insights and gain a comprehensive understanding of the data. The joint vision of the partnership is to empower scientific researchers and data scientists to gain deeper insights from unstructured data sources such as clinical notes, literature, and patents, as well as to accelerate innovation in the life sciences industry.
By augmenting DISQOVER with Averbis’ NLP capabilities, data scientists will be able to better explore and understand more relationships within the data and derive new insights that were previously hidden within unstructured data sources. These new capabilities are now available as part of the DISQOVER platform and are offered as an add-on, allowing customers to integrate their NLP results into other business applications and services.
