Advisory: Deprecation of InterSystems IRIS NLP (formerly known as "iKnow")
InterSystems has decided to stop further development of the InterSystems IRIS Natural Language Processing, formerly known as iKnow, technology and label it as deprecated as of the 2023.3 release of InterSystems IRIS.
InterSystems will continue to support existing customers using the technology but does not recommend starting new development projects outside of the core text exploration use cases it was originally designed for. Other use cases involving natural language are increasingly well-served using novel techniques based on Large Language Models, an area InterSystems is also investigating in the context of specific applications.
