FRONTEO: deploys an AI developed in-house for the fields of medicine and drug discovery in the field of business intelligence
Masahiro Morimoto, President and CEO
(Code number: 2158 TSE Mothers)
FRONTEO Inc. (Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo, Chairman: Masahiro Morimoto, hereinafter FRONTEO) develops the AI engine “Concept Encoder (brand: conceptencoder, reading: concept encoder) in the field of science AI We announce that we will expand the scope of “” and develop it for the business intelligence enterprise that collects and analyzes the huge amount of business data accumulated in business information systems. company, etc., and aims to start providing it in the spring of 2022.
Since 2012, FRONTEO provides AI solutions through the internally developed AI engine “KIBIT” specialized in natural language analysis. KIBIT is an AI engine that learns tacit knowledge from experts and discovers the answer you want to find based on a small amount of teacher data from a huge amount of sentences, and enables analysis very precise in a short time. Taking advantage of this characteristic, it has contributed to the efficiency and sophistication of operations in the areas of fraud investigation, legal/intellectual property management, skills transfer, hazard prediction, etc. ., and has been introduced by more than 200 companies to date.
“Concept Encoder” was developed in 2018 as the second AI after KIBIT. AI expresses similarities and relationships between documents and words through vectorization, and in order to capture document features in a more multifaceted way, it is good at achieving results that could not be achieved by simply tracing words. ..So far, the “Coroban” AI system that reads nursing records and predicts a patient’s risk of falling/falling, and the “Amanogawa” paper research AI that scans and analyzes a huge amount of medical information on paper in an overwhelmingly short time compared to humans. Has been released and has been well received as an AI that can be widely used in the field of life science.
In the spring of 2022, FRONTEO will expand the application area of Concept Encoder based on the know-how acquired through product development and service provision, and develop new products for various business areas such as manufacturing, construction and finance. ..Introducing Concept Encoder products in addition to KIBIT products which have been used and proven successful for many years in the field of business intelligence, we aim to provide AI solutions that do not neglect the risks and opportunities buried in the archives of the domain.
[Example of using Concept Encoder]
Visualize the analysis results of the target document in a map using Concept Encoder. The user can intuitively input the search target and incidental information around it without reading each document. The figure shows an example of visualization of an accident report in the construction industry. Each point represents a past accident.
FRONTEO will develop products for the field of business intelligence using Concept Encoder at the NeuroLanguage Science Institute, which was established in October 2021. The institute was created to dig deeper into the effects of language on humans and to gain a deeper understanding of human behavior and perceptions. As an expert in natural language processing AI, FRONTEO will use the two research functions of the Institute of Behavioral Information Sciences and the Institute of Neuro-Language Sciences, which developed KIBIT, to develop and provide solutions that solve social and business problems. I will work there.
[Comment by Hiroyoshi Toyoshiba, Director, CTO, Institute of Neuro-Language Science]
In the past, finding and understanding documents was done by searching for keywords and reading phrases. Concept Encoder was developed with a focus on completeness, bird’s eye view and visualization, with the aim of streamlining work and working using natural language with a different approach from KIBIT. Optimal methods and means using Concept Encoder, which has proven record in highly specialized fields such as medical information and medical literature, in the field of business intelligence, which is abstract and includes various behaviors, perceptions and human problems. I am convinced that we can achieve this.
■ About FRONTEOURL:https://www.fronteo.com/
FRONTEO uses the internally developed AI engines “KIBIT”, “Concept Encoder” and “Looca Cross” which specialize in natural language processing to extract meaningful and important information from a huge amount of textual data, and are used by businesses. A data analytics company that supports businesses. Since its inception in August 2003, it has expanded globally to Japan, the United States, South Korea and Taiwan, focusing on legal technology companies such as “e-discovery (discovery electronic)” and “digital forensic investigation” that support businesses. international litigation. Has been deployed. Based on the AI technology cultivated in this enterprise, we will expand the business field to the field of life science, business intelligence and economic security from 8, and using the ‘AI to “turn textual data into knowledge”, We help solve various business problems such as drug discovery support, dementia diagnosis support, financial, personnel and business support.

■ About KIBIT
“KIBIT” is an artificial intelligence that analyzes text without relying on keywords, using a unique machine learning algorithm that replicates the “tacit knowledge” possessed by specialists and business experts. high natural language processing, high-precision analysis can be performed in a short amount of time with a small amount of teacher data, contributing to operational efficiency and sophistication in areas such as fraud investigation , intellectual property strategy, skills transfer and risk forecasting. To do.
■ About the Concept Encoder
“Concept Encoder (Brand: concept encoder, reading: Concept Encoder)” is a natural language analysis AI (artificial intelligence) developed by FRONTEO especially in the field of life sciences. It was developed in 2018 with the aim of effectively analyzing and using medical data containing a large amount of evidence-based free-form textual data. Concept Encoder can be co-analyzed with non-text data, and we conduct research on co-analysis with numerical data such as gene expression information, vital signs, and various test values that have been accumulated in the field of life sciences.
