We provide highly efficient radiology services by augmenting human experts with deep learning technology

Merantix is building AI-driven radiological services that perform automated and assisted diagnoses on radiological images. To develop our service, we have built a strong network of renown research and clinical institutions all over Europe. To ensure the highest quality standards we only work with biopsy-proven images, corresponding medical reports, and high-quality annotations. Our breast cancer detection algorithm is already on par with the human benchmark.

WORKFLOW EFFICIENCY

Deep learning can automatically read and report normal studies such that highly specialist radiologists can focus on complex reading tasks.

PATIENT SECURITY

Radiologists are the ones who suffer from increasing workloads. Deep learning can prevent them from making mistakes by providing a cheap second look.

ACCESSIBILITY

Most countries dramatically lack expert radiologists. Deep learning is the driving force behind empowering local medical specialists to provide high quality radiology everywhere at anytime.

Our Breast Cancer Solution

SMART ELIMINATION OF NORMAL CASES

Especially in breast cancer screening, 97% of all exams are normal. Deep learning can learn to automatically distinguish suspicious from normal studies and provide structured reports for normal exams without human interaction.

DECISION SYSTEM FOR COMPLEX CASES

Our system filters and forwards complex cases to sub-specialist human experts. To reduce interpretation ambiguity, we help radiologists by providing risk based decision support.

WEB-BASED VIEWING CAPABILITIES

We believe AI technology combined with human expertise are the winning combination. That's why we build web-based viewing systems specifically built for the purpose of human-machine interaction.

CONTINUOUS LEARNING IN CLINICAL ROUTINE

We build infrastructure technology that exposes our algorithms to real feedback loops in clinical routine, based on biopsy labels and intertemporal analysis of longitudinal data.

Careers at Merantix

Engaging Topics

Merantix encourages you to pursue your curiosity and passion for several diverse topics. We are dedicated to addressing machine-learning problems that are challenging and foundational to an entire industry. We believe that diversity across topics is essential to attracting and retaining the greatest talent and to promoting creativity, continuous improvement, and functional learning.

Professional Development

Merantix is proactive in making major contributions to the open-source community. We encourage all of our employees to regularly attend professional conferences. Merantix is a regular guest at notable academic conferences on machine learning such as NIPS, ICCV, ICLR and ECCV. At the ECCV event this September, we will host an Italian Night with great food where you will be able to get in touch with all of us.

Work-Life Balance

Merantix offers a dynamic and flexible work environment. Some of us come in during “regular” business hours, and some prefer to start later or earlier. Our employees have the freedom to work when it best suits them. We are a fully trust-based organization that does not track vacation time. We believe in ownership of work, personal responsibility, and the motivation of our people, which has proven to be a successful approach to leadership

 

Collaborative Culture

Merantix is a family of diverse people from all over the world that came to Berlin to work on machine learning. We truly care about the individual well-being of our employees and support all of our new employees who are joining us in Berlin with whatever they may need. We have regular offsites and encourage everyone to organize common activities; just join the “all-sports” slack channel and stay up-to-date on bouldering, swimming, running, and much more.
