BioWisdom to Market Connexor Text Analyzer with its Sofia Platform

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Text analysis software company Connexor said on Friday that BioWisdom will distribute its Machinese platform along with its own Sofia Knowledge Suite.
Machinese will be used in BioWisdom's sofiaEditor module to automatically extract information from text-based online literature, Connexor said.
BioWisdom uses the Sofia suite to create so-called Intelligence Networks, which “allow unbiased, systematic analysis of problems and are used to support decision-making in all areas of the healthcare industry.”
Connexor said Machinese speeds up product development by "reducing the need for costly manual extraction and enabling timely discovery of facts and trends."
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
BioWisdom also has an ongoing partnership with drugmaker AstraZeneca.
