ViewsIQ and GenerationsE Sign Worldwide Commercial Agreement for AI
Vancouver, BC, Canada, December 4, 2020 – ViewsIQ and GenerationsE are pleased to jointly announce their partnership for the worldwide sales representation of GenerationsE’s DeepScene product for AI-driven detection of colorectal cancer. Under the terms of the agreement, ViewsIQ will employ its sales, marketing and e-commerce expertise to represent DeepScene.
“As the field of Pathology continues to go digital, providing Health Care Professionals with a more complete set of tools is critical – from slide digitization through to clinical decision support,” said Kenneth To, CEO of ViewsIQ. He continued “Aligning with this approach, we are proud to partner with GenerationsE and their technology for AI-driven detection of colorectal cancer.”
“Pathologists and technicians face an ever-growing demand in workload, yet the resources to support this remain static, if not declining. One way to augment this is through automation. Our flagship product, DeepScene, is an AI-driven approach to detecting colorectal cancer. Through its deployment in a number of institutions already, we are excited to be partnering with ViewsIQ in expanding its worldwide adoption,” said Dr. Lin Xu, CSO of GenerationsE.
With colorectal cancer being the 4th leading cause of cancer death worldwide, tools for faster screening are critical. DeepScene is an AI-powered technology that when combined with digital imaging solutions serve as a powerful combination in helping to fight this disease.
