For high-speed AI training tool in medical image analysis. The patent covers the techniques deployed by Aiforia's active learning tool, Annotation Assistant, for the accelerated development of AI models for image analysis in pathology.
Lightning fast AI training with Aiforia's patented method
Aiforia’s cloud-based software, Aiforia Create, enables medical professionals to create AI models, without the need to code or use dedicated hardware, for any image analysis application. This is now made even easier with Annotation Assistant which increases the efficiency and accuracy of training AI models while decreasing the time and effort you need to spend in training AI.
Annotation Assistant utilizes active learning, a highly sought-after technique in artificial intelligence, for which Aiforia holds a U.S. patent.
The novel tool works by scanning images for areas that would provide the most useful training data during AI model development; suggesting these to the user to make the decision to accept, modify or reject.
This auto scanning technique therefore decreases training time, improves the quality of the AI model and is particularly useful in analyzing rare cases and large data sets with heavy variation. The same tool also provides an ideal method to rapidly adapt pre-validated AI models to a new laboratory.
What are the benefits of using Annotation Assistant?
Decrease AI training time
Improve AI training quality
Particularly useful for rare cases and large data sets with heavy variation

“Annotation Assistant really saves you a lot of time. It also brings up the more difficult areas that I myself would not have realized to annotate. It really made the AI model better.”
