"Designing Growth Strategies is in our DNA"
In 2018, Aiforia Technologies Oy (previously known as Fimmic), a Finland based software company developed Aiforia, artificial intelligence, and cloud-based application, with the aim to offer extensive image analysis as well as to improve speed and precision in tissue-based diagnostics. Recently, the U.K. government announced a multi-million-pound joint investment in conjunction with major market players with the aim to digitize all laboratories under the National Health Services (NHS). This strategic move of the U.K. government will help all the radiography laboratories to expand access to advanced digital pathology service.
Digital Pathology is playing a vital role in improving workflow, by connecting pathologists around the world, and performing important functions such as capturing, storage, and sharing the images with healthcare providers around the world, which is responsible for increasing productivity and reducing costs of pathological processes. In 2017, Olympus Corporation entered in a joint research alliance with Chugoku Cancer Centre for development computer-aided diagnosis using artificial intelligence for gastric biopsy specimens.
