Artificial intelligence is enabling extraordinary advances in healthcare. It promises to reduce costs and improve healthcare outcomes. But AI is only as accurate and effective as the data it is trained on. Nearly 30% of the world’s data is generated by the healthcare industry, but it is largely unstructured or poorly annotated, making it unusable.
Centaur Labs is advancing medical AI through trusted, accurate medical data labeling. Instead of relying on the opinion of a single medical professional, we harness the power of collective intelligence and performance incentives to achieve an unprecedented level of accuracy at scale.
Patients and healthcare companies often trust a single physician’s advice, even though physicians disagree with each other at alarming rates. This disagreement, proven in numerous studies, is pervasive across clinical areas.
As AI plays an increasingly large role in healthcare, the consequences for bad quality inputs grow. How do you train an AI model when you lack confidence in the underlying data?
Misdiagnoses and errors in medical decisions—from AI and humans alike—cost lives.
Centaur accurately labels medical data by intelligently combining opinions from experts with medical knowledge and specialized training.
Our approach is built on four pillars:
We have a deep understanding of niche tasks, data formats, security constraints, and regulatory hurdles.
Tens of thousands of medical students and professionals compete against each other to label medical cases for our customers. On our labeling mobile app, DiagnosUs, we collect over a million opinions every day.
We make the labeling experience competitive to constantly measure accuracy and incentivize effort from labelers.
We intelligently aggregate opinions to create labels that beat the accuracy of individual board-certified doctors.
40,000–80,000 patients die annually in the U.S. from diagnostic errors.
We know the stakes are high and that medical AI is hard, so we’re relentless about delivering the highest quality data labels.
We collaborate with and continue to invest in our network of experts. We listen to our customers’ challenges and customize solutions to improve their life-saving technology.
