Jackson, Florida-based analytics and machine learning company NLP Logix is developing deep learning algorithms targeted at mining the years of diagnostic work done by Mayo Clinic and the healthcare system’s experience in developing and deploying artificial intelligence solutions by NLP Logix.

“This collaboration is bringing together the clinical expertise of Mayo Clinic, the extensive deep learning infrastructure and experience we have gained over the past six years here at NLP Logix, and the ability to quickly distribute these models via Azure,” NLP Logix Chief Scientist Matt Berseth said in a statement.

The first product suite NLP Logix is poised to deliver focuses on helping physicians better diagnose strokes in patients.

W. David Freeman, MD, a neurologist at the Mayo Clinic in Florida said Mayo would focus on developing a suite of stroke detection algorithms, which would be taught by using the vast amount of de-identified clinical data Mayo Clinic has collected over the years.

NLP Logix offers predictive modeling and machine learning capabilities to customers across industries, including financial services, energy, healthcare, government and human resources among them.

Mayo Clinic, Freeman and Charles Bruce, MD, have a financial interest in the technology. Mayo Clinic will use any revenue it receives to support its not-for-profit mission in patient care, education and research, executives noted.
