The computer vision leader offers controlled release cloud-based software to speed up innovation for life-enhancing drugs and medical devices


Palo Alto, CA, May 2, 2023LandingAI, the leading computer vision cloud platform, today announced the validation-ready version of its LandingLens platform. This new platform version is targeted at highly regulated industries, such as life sciences, drug and medical device makers, so they can speed up innovative solutions that improve the lives of everyone around the world.


Companies regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) need to validate the tools that they use, everything from filling pill vials to manufacturing medical devices. This validation process can take months and require future updates as the tools change.


With the validation-ready version of LandingLens, companies can now streamline and speed-up the validation process from three months to just one or two weeks, as well as improve the reliability and quality by following a standard process. This reduces the risk of running afoul of FDA regulations, which can cost companies millions of dollars. LandingLens is the only deep learning cloud-based platform that supports validation.


“AI, starting with computer vision, is a game-changing tool for medical device, pharmaceutical and life sciences industries, and we’ll see rapid innovation in the coming years,” said Andrew Ng, LandingAI CEO and noted AI pioneer. “This new deployment of LandingLens will make that technology available to more companies for more use cases while also improving collaboration and accessibility via the cloud.”


Leading life science and medical device companies are already using LandingLens to classify pills, inspect vials, conduct quality and assurance for packaging, or find and eradicate defects in medical device components, down to the integrity of soldering joints. With LandingAI’s computer vision platform, these visual inspections happen faster and with greater reliability than if done manually. LandingLens makes it easy to acquire and label data, ensure data quality, and train AI models. The platform is fast and intuitive, enabling teams of all skill levels to build deep learning models.


The validation-ready version of LandingLens is on a controlled release cycle, and will update every six months. In the fifth month, companies will learn of upcoming features and be able to document, test and validate them within a staging environment prior to the new release being pushed to a production environment. Because it is cloud-based, the validation-ready version of LandingLens works with any hardware. Companies can access other benefits of the cloud, such as scaling up or down based on their needs.


LandingAI is partnering with Verista, a leader in validation and vision automation, to produce documentation and templates that simplify the review process for companies deploying LandingLens.
