More project information

Owkin, a private company, builds artificial intelligence-based algorithms that can interpret biomedical images, genomics and clinical data to discover biomarkers and mechanisms associated with diseases and treatment outcomes. Owkin was co-founded in 2016 by Thomas Clozel, MD, a clinical research doctor and former assistant professor in clinical hematology and Gilles Wainrib, PhD, a pioneer in the field of Artificial Intelligence in biology. 

Owkin provides its innovative artificial intelligence algorithms to several of the largest cancer centers in Europe and in the US. Owkin Socrates is the company’s flagship technology platform, engineered to be comprehensive and easily usable by non-machine learning experts to perform artificial intelligence projects and deliver production level predictive models. Empowered by machine learning and deep learning algorithms, users can easily create predictive models and optimize drug development at every stage, from survival prognosis to target discovery, patient recruitment for clinical trials to post-market analysis. Combining algorithmic excellence with unique access to real-world data, Owkin Socrates integrates pre-trained models using proprietary privacy-preserving transfer and federated learning technologies.

Owkin has already signed partnerships and work pro bono with the Institut Curie and the National Institute on Health and Medical Research (INSERM) in Paris, and with the Léon Bérard Cancer Control Center (CLCC) in Lyon.

Owkin claims to be an innovative tool for the health industry because it facilitates medical diagnosis and treatments, and therefore participates in better health and well-being.
