Linguamatics iScite 2.0 Wins Bio-IT World’s Best of Show Judges’ Prize
Linguamatics, the leading natural language processing (NLP) text analytics provider, today announced that Bio-IT World has awarded Linguamatics the Best of Show Judges’ Prize for Linguamatics iScite 2.0, a software-as-a-service AI scientific search application that puts the power of text analytics directly into the hands of researchers and clinicians. iScite was one of 46 products considered for this prestigious award at last week’s Bio-IT World Conference & Expo in Boston.
Bio-IT World’s Best of Show Awards Program recognizes the most innovative product solutions for the life science industry, as judged by a panel of experts from academia, industry, pharma and biotech. During the May 16 awards ceremony, iScite was applauded as a product that had “blown away” the judges, by putting “big pharma power into the hands of the small guy”. Judges also recognized iScite for “the natural language processing power it delivers at a very affordable price point” and issued a challenge to the Bio-IT community to embrace the tool to “see what a whole community of really smart people can accomplish with it.”
“We are thrilled to be awarded with the Judges’ Prize and honored by the amazing feedback from the judges and other conference participants,” said John M. Brimacombe, executive chairman for Linguamatics. “The reaction to iScite is overwhelmingly positive, confirming our belief that this solution delivers a major search breakthrough, thanks to its novel answer-routing engine. iScite delivers a balance of usability and power that democratizes the scientific search process and magnifies user productivity. It’s truly the first real innovation in search in a very long time.”
iScite allows researchers to extract and analyze relevant data to rapidly answer business-critical questions. iScite utilizes Linguamatics’ award-winning NLP-based blend of analytical methods to understand the semantics and structure of text and handles the variety of ways people express the same information, ensuring searches are comprehensive and accurate. According to IDC, knowledge workers spend an average of 8.8 hours per week searching for information. iScite reduces search time and delivers more complete answers to drive faster scientific discovery and development.

Small imperfections in a wine glass or tiny creases in a contact lens can be tricky to make out, even in good light. In almost total darkness, images of such transparent features or objects are nearly impossible to decipher. But now, engineers at MIT have developed a technique that can reveal these “invisible” objects, in the dark.
For scientists wrestling with problems as diverse as containing superhot plasma in a fusion reactor, improving the accuracy of weather forecasts, or probing the unexplained dynamics of a distant galaxy, turbulence-spawning shear flow is a serious complicating factor. A new supercomputer-powered effort aims to make modelling shear far easier.
