At the core of SparkBeyond’s finesse is its AI-powered research engine, built using open source software and the company’s proprietary capabilities. When deployed in the production environment, the engine automatically takes in data from multiple sources, to discover solutions for health diagnosis, readmissions to hospitals and a myriad of other outcomes. To further augment solution discovery, the engine can also consider the knowledge input from humans. “Our platform is a machine for exploring a set of potential solutions to problems, using data, computational building blocks and a network of human intelligence,” mentions Sergey Davidovich, CEO, SparkBeyond. In a striking difference from the conventional analytical platforms, SparkBeyond’s research engine brings to the healthcare domain the ability to overlay the relevant semantic context, thus creating transparency to physicians and domain experts.
The adaptive nature of SparkBeyond’s research engine is designed to address a key challenge in the healthcare domain, where new discoveries, changes in drug resistance, trends in human behavior or new food ingredients lead to a constant need to revisit past assumptions.

SparkBeyond’s state-of-the-art research engine has been instrumental in the materialization of several important innovations in the healthcare sector. Among them was early detection of colon-cancer, discovery of drivers for readmissions to hospitals or hip fracture risk drivers, based on data from a broad range of data sources.
The trail of innovations enabled by SparkBeyond extends far and wide. Further, projects implemented for one domain serves as an application for another, which Sergey describes as “an interesting cross-pollination happening between various domains to increase the serendipity—one of the values we strongly believe in.” In one case, the portal designed to help a pharma company served as an excellent automated pharma co-vigilance solution for processing the various cases, which immensely benefited SparkBeyond’s partners.
The proven value proposition enabled SparkBeyond to build strong partnerships with leading Pharma companies and healthcare providers, which fueled the rapid global expansion through a growing number of hubs across the globe. Simultaneously, SparkBeyond is committed to solving global challenges through its pro-bono activity.
