InterSystems iKnow now available as an open source solution
InterSystems, a provider of information technology platforms, is making InterSystems iKnow, the InterSystems IRIS Data Platform natural language processing (NLP) technology, available as an open source solution.
Open source availability enables existing InterSystems partners and customers, as well as other organizations and academics, to capitalize on the bottom-up approach that delivers deeper insights with NLP provided by InterSystems iKnow.
Moving the InterSystems iKnow software into the public domain makes it easier to embed the technology deep in applications and business processes inside and outside of InterSystems IRIS.
It also enables customers to customize the technology at a foundational level, tune, and broaden language models beyond what is possible within fixed release cycles of proprietary products.
InterSystems will continue to support InterSystems iKnow as part of the InterSystems IRIS platform for exploration and search use cases, and provide long-term support and maintenance to the open sourced projects.
InterSystems IRIS customers will have access to InterSystems iKnow technology free as part of their InterSystems IRIS investment.
“Organizations are being pressured to innovate faster to keep pace with the demands of today’s automated workplace,” said Jeff Fried, director of product management for InterSystems IRIS Data Platform. “Harnessing natural language is key to delivering the intelligent applications that make this possible. Making InterSystems iKnow available to the public is part of our initiative to provide our customers, partners, and the broader technology community with the tools and resources required to reach their full potential and make a lasting impact in healthcare, business, government, and more.”
