The aiForward program is powered by Aiforia, developer of a state-of-the-art AI platform and the Aiforia® Create tool.

Aiforia, founded in 2013, is a spin-off company of the Finnish Institute for Molecular Medicine at the University of Helsinki. Aiforia is transforming pathology and medical research by bringing together deep learning AI and high-performance cloud computing for tissue image analysis.

Some of the current Aiforia platform users include University of Tufts, Ulm University, University of Oxford and University of Helsinki.

Aiforia grants all aiForward participants free of charge access to the Aiforia Create tool. In addition, each aiForward project is assigned a dedicated support team of Aiforia experts to ensure smooth AI implementation.

Aiforia® Create — AI serving your research

Aiforia Create is easy to use and empowers pathologists and researchers to generate their own deep learning algorithms. Without prior programming or machine learning experience, you can train your algorithm to detect and quantify specific features of interest in tissue images. You just simply annotate, train, and validate.

1. Image annotation
Upload your images to Aiforia Create. Indicate the relevant features in an image to create an algorithm.

2. Deep learning
Train your algorithm and it learns to recognize similar features in new images.

3. Validation
Validate the results Aiforia Create delivers. When ready, you can run new analyses on the rest of the samples.

Aiforia Create is cloud based, giving you direct access to deep learning AI through your browser on any device—without investments in infrastructure or IT support. The cloud platform allows you to store and analyze your digitized sample slides, as well as share them with your colleagues.

Aiforia Create is compatible with the following 2D scanner file formats:

  • Hamamatsu: .ndpi, .vms
  • Leica-Aperio: .scn, .svs
  • PerkinElmer: .qptiff
  • Philips: .tif
  • 3DHistech: .mrxs

The following image file formats are also compatible:

  • JPEG2000: .jp2, .jpf, .jpx, .ecw
  • TIFF: .tiff, .tif
  • Other: .bmp, .jpeg, .jpg, .jpe, .png
