Scientific rigor meets cutting-edge
Designed for scientific discovery. Trusted by Life Science leaders.
PIPA is a company that conducts research and development of technology in the field of bioinformatics, machine learning and artificial intelligence. It also provides IT integration, software design and development services.
Our technology and infrastructure form the backbone of digital assets and are the innovation springboard for our clients. Through a unique combination of Machine Learning, Engineering, and Bioinformatics, PIPA clients are able to automate cumbersome, costly workflows, de-risk decision-making and unlock novel insights that fuel the next generation of scientific breakthroughs across Nutrition/Food and Human Health.
Machine Learning & AI
Our Data Science & Machine Learning team leverage best-in-class public and in-house designed frameworks to harness Big Data and generate new knowledge through AI techniques.
Integrative Knowledge Graphs, powerful Search capabilities and actionable dashboards bring unmatched advantage to our clients who tap into exclusive, AI-generated insights to make transformative advancements during Early Research and Discovery.
Our vision is a multidimensional understanding of the data, that combines algorithmic approaches and mathematical models, with knowledge from domain experts, in order to extract valuable, interpretable insights that our clients trust.
In recent years we have seen an exponential growth in research dedicated to automatically extracting information through knowledge graphs (KG); a trend partially driven by the successful use of proprietary graphs by companies like Google and Facebook and the recent availability of quality, manually curated KBs. At PIPA we realized that the automated mining of biomedical domain KG has the potential to significantly accelerate research and discovery across nutrition, biology, and drug discovery. PIPA develops state-of-the-art graph learning algorithms capable of reasoning on KG and extracting relevant features from them.
Our goal is to supply our clients with accurate, actionable information and novel insights that manifest themselves when using AI to query the integrated knowledge bases.
We invest significant effort in identifying scalable solutions based on the appropriate combination of algorithms and resources to provide efficient scalability and accuracy. Probabilistic approaches and hashing schemes are seamlessly integrated in our engines to significantly reduce the complexity of our solutions. Candidate objects of interest are quickly identified and then analyzed in depth by more complex pipelines. Furthermore, we have developed algorithmic mechanisms to identify and deal with noisy and potentially erroneous data. Our fault-tolerant and distributed infrastructure design allows us to continuously and accurately analyze vast volumes of data in an ever changing, messy, and exciting real-world environment.
We integrate public and proprietary omics data via in-house, scientifically proven bioinformatics pipelines to generate insights on cohort identification, taxonomic and metabolic pathway abundances, gene expression and differentially abundance features.
Our products and innovation services harness the PIPA Data & Analytics Platform (PDAP), enabling a multi-tenant performant solution that offers high scalability while also guaranteeing high levels of security.
The application layer is integrated with the PIPA Data and Analytics Platform (PDAP) which serves as the backbone of the data infrastructure of the entire ecosystem. PDAP leverages Azure’s Databricks and Batch services along with LEAP™ core’s Prefect-powered Execution Engine. Together, they enable highly performant and scalable Data and Bioinformatics Pipelines which when coupled with its inherent multitenant nature can generate unique insights by combining the platform’s data assets with user-provided ones.
Let’s advance scientific discovery together
Our mission is to unlock a cost-efficient, faster path to innovation for our partners by leveraging our team’s top-tier scientific expertise and our proprietary Nutrition AI, LEAP™.
