Leica Microsystems’ Aivia Software Update Delivers Enhanced AI Image Analysis Capabilities
Aivia 10.5 delivers up to 74% time savings with AI-powered neural analysis
Leica Microsystems, a leader in microscopy and scientific instrumentation, has released Aivia 10.5, the latest version of its AI-based image visualization, analysis and interpretation platform. This release saves neuroscientists up to 74% of their time when analyzing and reconstructing neurons in 3D datasets thanks to the introduction of a new module of its Autonomous Parameter Prediction System image analysis.
Other enhancements include advanced options for training and applying deep learning models, support for new NVIDIA GPUs, expanded file format support from Leica, and a simplified user experience, allowing Aivia users to get the most out of their image analysis tools.
“Aivia 10.5 will give back valuable time to the neuroscience community to focus on critical thinking and additional experiments,” said Luciano Lucas, PhD, Director of Aivia Solutions at Leica Microsystems. “By focusing on efficiency, automation and ease of use, we are making AI accessible to everyone.”
Aivia’s image analysis parameter prediction system, Aivia That Learns, improves workflows by learning to autonomously configure the image analysis parameters required for detection and analysis tasks image by itself. This AI-powered feature was first introduced for autonomous 3D object analysis with Aivia 10.0 in August 2021. With version 10.5, Aivia That Learns enables scientists to initiate their neural tracing analysis by two mouse clicks.
Aivia 10.5 introduces extended deep learning features. Designed for expert users, this new feature allows all deep learning trains to be customized and variables to be applied. Users can now set parameters for network architecture, intensity normalization method, learning rate, number of epochs and many more.
Aivia subscribers have the opportunity to join the Aivia That Learns community to improve the functionality of the software for the benefit of all. The learning system allows users to easily share representations of their images, recipe parameters and analysis quality feedback with the Aivia development team.
User data can then be used to update the Aivia That Learns AI model to improve parameter prediction for all users.
Easy access with the new subscription model
Aivia’s innovative image analysis software is now available as an annual subscription. Three subscription plans were designed with unique research needs in mind: Aivia Go, Aivia Elevate and Aivia Apex, to provide users with ultimate flexibility, decision-making power and peace of mind to focus on their scientific research.
