About Deep 6 AI

Who we are

Deep 6 AI finds more patients for clinical trials in minutes rather than months, getting life-saving cures to people more quickly.

Deep 6 AI got its start by beating out some of the biggest names in analytics in a U.S. government-sponsored contest. This led to a contract with the U.S. intelligence community, which is perhaps the most complex data environment in the world. Since 2016, Deep 6 AI has focused exclusively on healthcare, participating in the Cedars-Sinai Accelerator Powered by Techstars, the Healthbox modified-accelerator program, and Stanford’s StartX Accelerator. Deep 6 AI was founded in 2015 and is based in Pasadena, CA.

What we do

About 90% of all data in the world is unstructured, yet very few software tools know how to leverage the information it contains. We build applications that understand massive amounts of unstructured data at a very high speed and learn from users to single out the information that is most important to them. Deep 6 AI applies artificial intelligence and natural language processing to all clinical data to find eligible patients for clinical trials faster, accelerating recruitment exponentially and getting cures to the people who need them more quickly.
