BioCAID Careers

BioCAID is an AI software technology company solving fundamental problems experienced by bioscience research individuals and institutions encountered when seeking to build upon, rather than repeat, prior discovery.   As an early stage company we are seeking to build out our team with qualified professionals in application development, user interface design, digital media marketing, enterprise sales, and customer service and support.   Please use our contact page to reach us to learn more, or check back as we add specific positions that become available.

BioCAID offers a more intelligent approach to the literature research and discovery processes:

  • Create better theories and well-defined baseline knowledge references, thereby increasing successful research discovery
  • Visual navigation, integration and aggregation of library research publications and knowledge saves time, raises research discovery and innovation productivity and reduces odds and costs of failure
  • Collect, comprehend and share research investigations and knowledge references for deep learning and assistive reasoning

Company History and Founder Inspiration

The standard operating procedure for any scientist is to document every theory, every step, every decision, from concept to hypothesis to discovery to the outcome of the research.  Since 1836, the National Library of Medicine has been gathering that information from studies and papers, cataloging it, and storing a digital version in their MEDLINE database. Medline is the world’s largest biomedical and life sciences library for scientific publication, and is the center of a global economy for scientific research. Medline has over 28 Million documents and images available free to the global community for research and discovery. However, the delivery of the data based on an user’s (scientist, researcher, or casual home based searcher) inquiry is limited by the antiquated search methods.

Over a decade ago, BioCAID founder, Anthony Prestigiacomo, began tackling this problem through his company Araicom Research to patent and develop his invention of Associative Relevancy for conceptual knowledge visualization, navigation and integration for deep learning and inference. This prior research by Mr. Prestigiacomo and Araicom have led to sponsored and collaborative research to develop computational technologies for Semantic Extraction, Literature Discovery and Language Modeling algorithms. These patent protected technologies establish thought leadership within the emerging domain of Assistive Artificial Intelligence applications integrating the knowledge in the libraries with the knowledge and interests of the researcher to increase research discovery and innovation productivity. As part of this prior research, peer-reviewed alpha protypes were created to test and document the power of these algorithms to deliver better literature research outcomes.  A video recording of that demo is available on our DEMO & INFO Page (live link to that page)

BioCAID, LLC was formed in 2018 for the specific intent of commercializing the technology into the IMDI (Intelligent Medline Discovery Integration) Platform.  The platform will include a Freemium version for the casual Home Health Search user, a paid subscription version for medical professionals, and an enterprise license for research universities and centers. BioCAID’s IMDI platform accelerates the generation of new ideas and biomedical advances by bringing to the surface the conceptual relationships and new discoveries that exist in medical literature.

It is generally held that ideas come from a subconscious process that takes two relatively unassociated thoughts and combines them together to produce a new thought a new idea. BioCAID’s IMDI platform accelerates the generation of new ideas and biomedical advances by bringing to the surface the conceptual relationships and opportunities that exist in medical literature.
