JADBio’s AutoML platform enables bioinformaticians, oncologists, virologists, data analysts, and other life-scientists to build machine learning models with no coding needed on their part. Its platform is intuitive and easy to use, permitting anyone to upload their data securely, train, and develop a model in a matter of minutes, using highly sophisticated algorithms. JADBio can analyze small sample sizes or vast feature sets, focusing on feature selection and interpretation of the predictive model. Its survival analysis functionality helps clinicians predict life expectancy, cancer metastasis and solve any time-to-event prediction problem. The platform comes with an array of reports and visual graphs to help interpret the model.
