Experience a new Search - Hop across vast amounts of data to specific elements of interest with flight controls at your fingertips. Learn more...


NLPCORE is a new search platform that combines AI, machine learning, product dictionaries, and user feedback to provide precise results as meaningful interrelated concepts and their references.
 
It is currently in use for Life Sciences Research and we plan to take it across many more consumer and enterprise verticals with help of our developer community. Stay tuned!



Solution

Why a new search

Looking for something specific beyond the first page? How about something relatively unknown or not searched by many? Or, what if you lack trained data, models or resources for AI, and Machine Learning based Search Engines?
Customers such as biologists, reagents suppliers constantly struggle with limitations of general purpose search engines or do not have resources to build one for their specific needs.

What we offer

A brand new experience - Color coded graphs, filters for topics, individual concepts, how they relate to one-another, and their references.
Self Learning - A system that continually learns from search context, sentence structure, dictionaries, catalogs and explicit user feedback on search results.
And Highly Customizable - build new UI, add new data, apply new dictionaries, tweak engine parameters, or try out new algorithms.


Technology

NLPCORE

Simple Data Model

We present results as a collection of interrelated concepts that are grouped together in various topics - such as products, places, events, people and others that are dynamically generated based on context of search terms.
These concepts are related to one another by their common references in source documents. More frequently they appear together, stronger their relationship is. These relationships can also be typed such as pathways, transformations or signaling based on how concepts are described together in a sentence. 

NLPCORE

Self Learning Algorithm

NLPCORE collects statistics such as word frequencies, colocation frequencies (within a single document and across the corpus) along with part of speech tags (noun, pronoun, or verb) in its index. Words that appear most frequently and closest to the search term(s) provide the seed data set for neural network algorithms that also factor in any available heuristics, dictionaries or past user feedback to present the most appropriate concepts and their relationships.

NLPCORE

Built for Scale

Our entire search platform from crawler, parser, indexer, data store, dictionary lookup to neural network search, is built upon discrete web scale components that are independently deployed, accessed through well defined APIs and run at scale for optimum throughput.


Focus Area

Mobirise

Life Sciences

We help researchers to:
* Identify candidate bio-entities, reagents, and their specific interactions for their experiments
* Validate references against biological dictionaries and published research
* Provide inline feedback to improve results accuracy

We help manufacturers and suppliers of life sciences materials to:
* Track usage of their products in research together with other related products
* Identify new products created or discovered in research
* Identify competitive products in use 

Mobirise

Search Development Platform

NLPCORE is architected across independently scalable components with extensibility at its core. Our secure APIs help:

* Solution Developers build new vertical solutions - Legal, News, Product Support, Resumes/Job Search

* Data Scientists aggregate results as time series, tag cloud, or geo map, and

*Algorithm developers apply new algorithms on raw results, index data with minimal development effort.

Dr. John Aitchison is Professor, President and Director at the Center for Infectious Disease Research (CIDR). As a student, he studied biochemistry, ializing in biotechnology and genetic engineering at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada. There, in the laboratory of Dr. Richard Rachubinski, he investigated the molecular mechanisms responsible for sorting proteins into peroxisomes. After receiving his PhD, Dr. Aitchison performed his postdoctoral work in the laboratory of Nobel Laureate Dr. Günter Blobel at Rockefeller University. In Dr. Blobel’s lab, Dr. Aitchison applied classic cell biology techniques and yeast genetics to the study of protein import into the nucleus. During this time, he began to apply large-scale proteomics to the problem, which he continued as an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of Alberta until joining the Institute for Systems Biology (ISB) as a founding faculty member in 2000.

Dr. Aitchison’s laboratory exploits systems-based assays and analyses to reveal and understand complex biological phenomena. For much of his career, his lab has focused on yeast as a model for developing systems biology approaches. He joined the Center for Infectious Disease Research in 2011 in order to bring systems biology to infectious disease research and use the challenges of infectious diseases to develop systems biology. Dr. Aitchison maintains a joint position at ISB and CIDR, building a partnership between the two organizations and remaining at the cutting-edge of systems biology while bringing new developments to infectious disease research.

Dr. Aitchison also holds affiliate appointments at the University of Washington, University of Alberta, and University of British Columbia and Rockefeller University. He is a member of the Molecular and Cellular Biology and Biomolecular Structural Design Graduate Programs at the University of Washington.
