ONTOFORCE launches advanced natural language processing capabilities to unlock valuable insights from unstructured data sources in life sciences  

Ghent, Belgium - 16 May 2023 

ONTOFORCE, provider of DISQOVER, the innovative data and knowledge platform built for life sciences, has announced the addition of advanced natural language processing (NLP) capabilities for the DISQOVER platform. These new capabilities will enable users to extract valuable insights from unstructured data sources such as text documents, PDFs, news articles, and images, improving decision-making and accelerating research. 

ONTOFORCE's new NLP capabilities are designed to be highly accurate, scalable, and customizable, and will be offered as an add-on to existing services. The software will enable users to extract key entities, relationships, and insights from unstructured data sources, such as biomedical literature, clinical trial reports, and patent documents, enabling researchers to better understand complex relationships and uncover new insights. 

"We are excited to offer these powerful new capabilities to our DISQOVER platform," says Valerie Morel, ONTOFORCE Chief Executive Officer. "Our goal has always been to empower researchers, data scientists, and decision-makers to easily access and understand vast amounts of data, and this new text mining tool will take that to the next level. We believe that these capabilities will be particularly valuable for the life sciences industry, where the ability to analyze and extract insights from unstructured data is critical for success."  

ONTOFORCE will also announce that it is launching its new NLP functionality at Bio-IT World 2023 in Boston. This premier event in the life sciences industry provides the perfect platform to showcase DISQOVER’s latest capabilities and demonstrate the value to researchers, IT professionals, and business leaders in the field.  

In addition to the launch at Bio-IT World, ONTOFORCE will also be demonstrating the new NLP offering during a live webinar on 25 May 2023. The webinar will provide an in-depth look at the new features and their applications, as well as offer an opportunity for attendees to ask questions and learn best practices. In addition to NLP, the ONTOFORCE experts will also discuss the value and applications of large language models (LLM), such as Chat-GPT, to the life sciences industry.
