About the Charisma Cognitive Intelligence Platform
Charisma is a cognitive intelligence platform that revolutionizes the way we search for and process vast amounts of unstructured data used and generated by an enterprise. Traditional databases are insufficient for handling the many types of media, sources, and languages in which information is now stored. Charisma addresses this problem by aggregating and semantically structuring data by meaning, then facilitating query and intelligent delivery of integrated results. It is capable of ingesting unstructured data from internal and public sources and conducts semantic normalization, metadata extraction, indexing, and normalization of the ingested material to allow the user to query vastly different types of data.
Charisma also has the ability to mine all sources of unstructured data to identify new knowledge such as disease biomarkers and pathways that were previously unconnected. The platform can be integrated with other tools, such as translational medicine platforms, to provide additional information feeds and automated curation for the data held inside the platform. Charisma allows scientists to quickly leverage large volumes of data that were previously unmanageable, enabling them to produce better science at a much faster rate. The result is that an organization can simultaneously do things it was previously unable to do and do it less expensively.
The Charisma Evidence Processing Pipeline
The Charisma Evidence Processing Pipeline is the workflow system behind the Charisma Cognitive Intelligence Platform. The pipeline comprises Crawlers, Evidence Data Preparation, Charisma Metadata, Charisma Categorization Engine, Charisma Clustering Engine, and Evidence Publication. The Charisma Categorization Engine automatically places evidence into the best-scored category against each machine learning model. The Charisma Clustering Engine generates a hierarchical list of named clusters that organize all knowledgebase evidence. Finally, the content is delivered through the Ingentium Magazines via Flipboard, AppleNews, RSS feeds, email reports, and social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, Slack and LinkedIn.
Charisma Machine Learning
Charisma Machine Learning is a suite of applications and algorithms used to process vast amounts of unstructured data for biomedical knowledgebases. The applications used include Mallet, Python NLTK, Python SciKit Learn, TensorFlow, and proprietary Ingentium applications. The algorithms used include sentence splitting, tokenization, lemmatization/stemming, POS tagging, shallow parsing, full parsing, support vector machines, and named entity recognition. These algorithms are used to map syntactic forms of words into their canonical base forms, to analyze the syntactic structure of sentences, and to categorize and recognize biomedical entities mentioned in text. By utilizing Charisma Machine Learning, Charisma is able to semantically structure and categorize vast amounts of unstructured data to provide valuable insights and knowledge for biomedical researchers and organizations.
The Ingentium Biomedical Knowledge Graph Scaffold
The Ingentium Biomedical Knowledge Graph Scaffold is a biomedical properties graph that contains the base nodes and edges required to represent the bulk of biomedical knowledge. It contains over 14 million interconnected nodes, including diseases, chemical compounds, biomolecules, and core concepts. The scaffold can be used to jumpstart internal knowledge graph efforts and can be augmented through the integration of knowledge sources like the Ingentium disease-focused knowledge bases. The scaffold is connected through more than 34 million edges, with various relationship codes and edge metadata for each type of relationship. The iKG semantic predication application is used to extract semantic predications from biomedical free text, which are processed and stored in the iKG.
