US biopharmaceutical giant deploys Intel AI Tech to enable new treatments

AbbVie , a global biopharmaceutical company based in Illinois , is leveraging Artificial Intelligence ( AI ) and Natural Language Processing ( NLP ) for research translation , improving collaboration and search capabilities to enable the discovery of new treatments for patients . With 47,000 employees around the world , AbbVie serves more than 30 million patients in 175 countries . With a geographically diverse team collaborating on numerous projects at the same time , AbbVie ’ s researchers need to be able to access critical data in a variety of languages .

To solve this problem , AbbVie created its own domain-specific translation and search tools , leveraging AI .
Brian Martin , Head of Artificial Intelligence at AbbVie , said : “ We built Abbelfish Machine Translation and AbbVie Search to accelerate and scale the work of our researchers , reducing the time it takes to discover and deliver transformative medicines and therapies for patients . We ’ re looking to leverage Intel technology in a new way to deploy these capabilities at scale across the enterprise .”
The enterprise found commercially available language translation services failed to provide the most accurate translations for their highly domain-specific biomedical text , making it difficult to collaborate and ensure access to the latest research – a challenge felt across the research industry by researchers who speak English as a second language .
