Deep Learning & AI

AI tools built for tissue pathology

Convolutional neural networks (CNNs) are driving the second paradigm shift in AI for image analysis. Conventional image analysis and machine learning are powerful but limited by how well you manually create the rules of your algorithms.

What is the difference between artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning?

Deep learning is part of a broader family of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning methods. Deep learning is based on the latest technology and a much more advanced approach as it learns from underlying features in data using deep neural networks.

How AI at Visiopharm is optimized for tissue pathologists and researchers

With convolutional neural networks (CNNs), a type of deep learning algorithms that are taught to recognize specific patterns, the underlying features and rules are learned directly from the images. Specifically, these neural networks use a cascade of layers with feature extraction and
transformations, with each successive layer using the output from the previous layer as the input, thus forming a hierarchical representation of the image. This means that the rules of the algorithm are learned automatically.

The deep learning technology in Visiopharm’s AI image analysis platform has been specifically
developed for the field of histopathology, so you are able to apply, train AND create high-quality
deep learning algorithms to obtain breakthrough results in your field of work.

With our platform, you get the power of state-of-the-art deep learning to solve your problems –
without having to write a single line of code.

Solve your most challenging problems with AI module

The AI module facilitates automatic cell and nuclei identification on H&E and IHC stained tissue sections – saving time and staining of multiple sections.
Obtain objective and reproducible results with our deep learning algorithms for any quantitative cell type analyses in combination with e.g. tumor and stroma segmentation.
Most cancer applications involve cell identification (classification + segmentation) and tissue compartmentalization. Manually solving this task is time-consuming, and highly challenging for the untrained eye, and often leads to subjective results. It is no longer the case with deep learning.

Analysis of your tissue samples with AI should not be a barrier, it should be your enabler.

Author your own AI APPs

Develop image analysis protocols and workflows without the need for AI expertise. Use our unique authoring capabilities to tailor an existing APP  to suit your needs, or to build your solution that delivers precise and accurate information without needing any programming experience.

The modular design of the software allows you to combine APPs and build a solution that answers your specific questions.

  • Independently customizable: Use different classifiers and magnifications for each step
  • Reuse and share APPs: Save your configuration and use them as often as you want
  • Report outputs at any stage of the workflow (e.g. tissue area, cell counts, proliferation index)
  • Easily modify APPs without rewriting an entire workflow
