Ever since the day computing devices started becoming the mainstream of businesses, data has been the backbone of their operations. In fact, this data has a pattern, that acts as the key concept of every problem and every solution that’s out there. When the era of High-Performance Computers (HPC) came into the picture, there were challenges associated with analyzing and identifying those data patterns. This is where Pattern Computer, a pattern discovery company that discovers and generates valuable hypotheses and insights into complex data, is creating an impact in the industry. Pattern Computer is a pioneer in finding novel patterns in complex data that cannot be discovered using conventional techniques or tools, even on exascale computers.
Unlike traditional machine learning or artificial intelligence company, Pattern Computer developed a proprietary, end-to-end system for generating new hypotheses and insights from data to help transform the way research or business look at data. “An interesting mathematical and practical difference between our math and neural networks is that we can do very large runs. Our memory requirements are linear, not exponential, because our mathematics is different,” extols Mark Anderson, CEO, Pattern Computer.
According to Pattern Computer, neural networks are great at predicting. But they are almost useless in providing “how and why” because of what’s called “the blackbox problem.” However, Pattern Computer has developed a new, innovative, end-to-end system, the Pattern Discovery Engine, for generating new hypotheses and insights from high-dimensional data to help transform the speed, efficiency, and effectiveness of research, business operations or development of new materials or products and services. PCI’s hypothesis-generating engine is delivering true Explainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI) today. This combination of innovations, the PDE, and true XAI, delivered on high dimensional data, dissecting real world problems is a ground-breaking new reality in analytics. These innovations and the analytical insights being delivered from them is prompting new ways of assessing and solving some of the most difficult and entrenched problems in the world today. Pattern Computer’s PDE with integrated XAI capabilities is the first and only analytical platform that transforms the Black Box into a Glass Box, and makes all the predictions and insights completely transparent.
Solving Problems with Ease
Today, Pattern Computer’s hypothesis-generating engine is prompting new ways of assessing and solving some of the most difficult and entrenched problems in medical research and other fields. Moreover, its results are helping forge partnerships with world-class organizations and experts in oncology, systems biology, precision medicine, and microbiome research. What’s really interesting is that the company’s platform is generating results that aim to advance industry standards in areas such as breast cancer treatments and prognostics, and in the detection of healthy versus disease-state pathways in microbiome and human gut disorders.
In addition to the PDE, PCI’s hypothesis-generating engine, the PCI team has developed new mathematics that is delivering true Explainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI) today. This combination of innovations, the PDE, and true XAI, delivered on high dimensional data, dissecting real world problems is a ground-breaking new reality in analytics. These innovations and the analytical insights being delivered from them is prompting new ways of assessing and solving some of the most difficult and entrenched problems in our world today.
The key contributors to Pattern Computer’s success are its powerful and highly skilled core team. The company has brought together veterans and subject matter experts across a multitude of tech and scientific domains, with the mission of bridging the prevailing gaps in ML to deliver breakthrough discoveries, beginning in their first domain of personalized medicine. The team has designed an integrated system optimized—and have patents pending for proprietary methods—across all 3 processing areas, including data preparation and ingestion, the pattern discovery engine, and advanced visualization and transparent delivery of high-dimensional insights.
Redefining the way Businesses Utilize Data
Since opening its doors, Pattern Computer has been redefining the way companies look at data. While explaining the value proposition of the company, Anderson recalls an instance when the team assisted a top tier aerospace manufacturer. “The client company’s team were struggling with manufacturing quality control problems, deriving from failures in assembled parts on an airframe. However, the components were passing all their tests. The company shared their production data with Pattern Computer, and the data itself wasn’t perfect. But Pattern has the ability to see what are called latent variables, so we could see that some critical information was missing that was contributing to this problem. Our discovery engines were able to detect new correlative details of failure as important contributors to the final solutions.
“When it comes to explainability, we have that too. We’ve been using explainability, when no one else had it, because we created new mathematics to allow this from the beginning. So, in this case with this aerospace firm, we had explainability, and we could deliver an actual mathematical description, also human readable, of why these failures were happening,” adds Anderson.
Delivering Life-Saving Contributions
The company’s CEO Mark Anderson has built a long and distinguished career successfully forecasting some of the most significant technological and economic trends across the globe. He credits his success on using pattern recognition to discover key trends that will influence future conditions or events. With the rapid expanse of data, he knew the challenge and opportunity for designing and automating a system for pattern discovery—that harnessed the power of pattern recognition against complex, high-dimensional data—was upon us. And he formed this company to do just that: developing the world’s first Pattern Computer system. While the company could apply its solution toward any domain, Pattern Computer’s founders and employees universally expressed desire to focus first on the field of medical research, as it presents the most daunting yet immediate promise for life-changing and life-saving contributions to society. This under scores the company’s mission of solving the most pressing health and societal problems, as the global leader in pattern discovery.
Today at Pattern Computer’s innovation lab is all about creating Pattern Discoveries and explainable solutions, in addition to providing the highest accuracy in the lowest possible time frame. From an economic perspective, the company is also working on expanding partnerships, especially in the healthcare and drug discovery solutions domain. “We are not limited by technology or the hardware, software, or the math. The only thing we are limited by data and people. We would be able to go as fast as anyone thinks with these two components.
The company is also launching its ProSpectral™ system, which appears to be the fastest, most accurate and least expensive high-throughput Covid test system. “Even as we expand ProSpectral to detect more diseases, we’re working to launch in India, Australia, America, Chile and the EU, in addition to this technical expansion,” concludes Anderson.
