Company description

Semantic data mining tools have been used to create a database of detailed profiles of life science companies and executives.

The system uses the open web as an underlying database and extracts specific information on people, job titles, biographies, research profiles, contact details (dept., phone, fax, and email), organisation profiles, websites, product/services and much more.

Maven is based on healthcare crawlers/bots, search technology, semantic parsers, clustering, natural language processing (NLP) and artificial intelligence (AI) technology.

"The system uses the context in which a given person appears, using artificial intelligence techniques to find out information not otherwise visible - for example, how important is this person in a specific medical research specialization," says Alejandro Mesas, Semantic Systems Architect. "The big advantage of a focused semantic healthcare database over a generic search engine is that it has built-in taxonomies and a thesaurus to expand and refine the user queries. We then use scoring and ranking to fine tune the relevance of the results for a given therapeutic area. For example, stem cell researchers are given a "page rank", based on where they work, their job title, how many times they have published, where they have published, etc. The relevance can be fine tuned by the user".
