CAIRN InfoWith Luxid® Content Enrichment Platform, Cairn.info automates the extraction of bibliographic references and the linking to  corresponding articles.

 

Paris, France – December 11, 2014  – TEMIS, the leading provider of Semantic Content Enrichment solutions for the Enterprise, has announced today that it has signed a major license and services agreement with CAIRN.info, the publishing portal dedicated to social sciences and humanities (SSH). Cairn.info provides SSH students and researchers with a particularly rich collection of journals, magazines, encyclopedias in pocket format, as well as reference works and research publications.

 

To make its collection easier to navigate, and ahead of the introduction of an additional 20.000 books which will consolidate its role of reference SSH portal, Cairn.info decided to enhance the interconnectedness of SSH publications with semantic enrichment. Indeed, the body of SSH articles often features embedded bibliographic references that don’t include actual links to the target document. Cairn.info therefore chose to exploit the Luxid® Content Enrichment Platform, driven by a customized annotator (Skill Cartridge®), to automatically identify, extract, and normalize these bibliographic references and to link articles to the documents they refer to. The benefit for the reader is that Cairn.info’s collection will function as a smooth to navigate, finely meshed network of publications.

 

“We are aware that web users are increasingly demanding when it comes to finding what they need. TEMIS’ technology will enable us to improve the user experience substantially by offering more crosslinks between the different types of content available on Cairn.info,” said Marc Minon, CEO, Cairn.info. 

 

“TEMIS is delighted to welcome Cairn.info, a renowned publisher specialized in humanities and social sciences, among its customers. Given the opportunities for adding value to SSH content, I believe this is the start of a long and fruitful collaboration between our two companies,” said Vincent Nibart, Sales Director – Publishing, TEMIS.

 

Based on patented and award-winning Natural Language Processing technologies, Luxid® exploits off-the-shelf extractors called Skill Cartridges® to extract targeted information from unstructured content and semantically enrich it with domain-specific metadata. Luxid® enables professional publishers to efficiently package and deliver relevant information to their audience, and helps enterprises to intelligently archive, manage, analyze, discover and share increasing volumes of information.

 

By automatically linking articles with their bibliographic references, Luxid® will facilitate Cairn.info’s processing of its entire archive, enable significant editorial productivity gains, and improve the user experience with rich, connected content, as well as its online visibility and referencing.

 

 

About CAIRN.info

Founded in 2005 by four publishing houses, three French (Belin, Erès, La Découverte) and one Belgian (De Boeck), Cairn.info enables Internet users to access a very wide corpus of social sciences and humanities publications in French : a particularly rich collection of more than 400 journals as well as magazines, works of reference and research publications (collective works and monographs), etc. Access to these publications is governed according to Cairn.info’s traditionally flexible and open principles: a single, format-agnostic portal (www.cairn.info) with a fair balance between freely accessible and paid content and  very flexible access options for users of a subscribing library i.e. unlimited on-site or remote simultaneous access, with no restriction on saving and printing DRM- free documents).

TEMIS conjugue gestion d’ontologie et enrichissement sémantique dans Luxid® 7

Luxid7

L’architecture intégrée de Luxid® 7 accélère et simplifie ces deux processus clés pour la gestion de l’information.

Paris, France – Le 23 septembre 2014 – TEMIS, leader des solutions d’enrichissement sémantique de contenu pour l’entreprise, annonce le lancement de Luxid® 7, la septième génération de sa plateforme d’enrichissement sémantique de contenu. TEMIS présentera Luxid® 7 lors d’un événement de lancement le 2 Octobre à la Maison de la Recherche à Paris auquel les parties intéressées sont invitées à s’inscrire http://www.temis.com/fr/events.

Bénéficiant d’une architecture interne optimisée, Luxid® 7 associe un outil de gestion d’ontologie dédié à sa chaîne d’enrichissement sémantique, et offre ainsi  à ses utilisateurs le premier workflow intégré du marché, pour des processus d’enrichissement plus simples et plus rapides, et un coût d’exploitation réduit.

L’ontologie (ou taxonomie) d’une organisation décrit les objets essentiels de son métier (ex. produits, régions, projets, …) et leurs relations. L’enrichissement sémantique fournit un mécanisme qui reconnaît leurs mentions – aussi appelées « triplets » – dans un texte. Ces dernières années, les ontologies et l’enrichissement sémantique sont devenus déterminants pour une exploitation efficace des contenus non structurés, mais restent le plus souvent déconnectés l’un de l’autre, requérant une coordination considérable entre experts métier, départements informatiques et linguistes pour assurer des résultats de qualité. Luxid® 7 comble ce fossé en proposant un workflow intégré, plus simple, plus rapide, et moins coûteux.

« Luxid® 7 offre des interfaces simples et intuitives pour les utilisateurs métier et se base sur des Web Services REST très simples à intégrer », déclare Daniel Mayer, VP Product & Marketing, TEMIS. « Nos clients peuvent désormais adopter des processus plus efficaces et déployer la valeur ajoutée de la sémantique dans leurs applications en une fraction du temps requis avec des systèmes disjoints», ajoute-t-il. « Notre volonté est d’accélérer l’adoption de ces technologies chez nos clients et de rendre les intégrateurs encore plus autonomes dans leur offre de services sémantiques. »

Une gestion d’ontologie plus simple, plus efficace et plus puissante grâce au TAL

Composant entièrement nouveau de Luxid®, Luxid® Webstudio est une application web collaborative qui permet de créer, modifier et maintenir une ontologie tout en gouvernant la manière dont ses objets seront reconnus par le processus d’enrichissement sémantique de Luxid®. Il appuie son analyse sur les couches de traitement automatique du langage pour :

  • Prévisualiser en temps réel les résultats du processus d’enrichissement sémantique appliqué au corpus documentaire des utilisateurs. Cela leur permet d’assurer rapidement l’adéquation de l’ontologie avec l’enrichissement sémantique et de corriger tout écart depuis la même interface, par exemple en ajoutant des synonymes ou en ajustant des mécanismes d’extraction.
  • Suggérer les objets pertinents mentionnés dans le corpus utilisateur et ne faisant pas encore partie de l’ontologie. Ce mécanisme de suggestion offre également aux utilisateurs un excellent outil pour construire une nouvelle ontologie le cas échéant.

Ces fonctionnalités puissantes simplifient et accélèrent donc la création et la maintenance de l’ontologie et de la chaîne d’enrichissement sémantique associée, pour un coût d’exploitation réduit.

Une architecture Big Data optimisée, extensible, et facile à intégrer

Luxid® Annotation Server est la chaîne-phare de traitement automatisé du langage de TEMIS. Grâce à sa librairie de Skill Cartridges® – les modules d’extraction d’information métier popularisés par TEMIS – sa couche linguistique en 20 langues, et sa gamme complète de moteurs morpho-syntaxiques, statistiques, taxonomiques et de machine-learning, Luxid® Annotation Server s’adapte à de nombreux cas d’usage. Dans sa septième génération, la chaîne a été revue en profondeur pour offrir :

  • Une architecture interne plus légère basée sur un modèle de données unique, qui optimise l’utilisation des CPU et s’adapte de manière efficace à une variété de configurations en scale-in et en scale-out, pour des applications en temps réel ou en batch. Luxid® Annotation Server se prête aussi bien aux déploiements Cloud que Big Data (Hadoop), et traite avec flexibilité des volumes croissants de contenu non structurés.
  • Des Web Services structurés en mode REST permettant une intégration simple au sein de n’importe quelle application ou processus. Au-delà de l’extraction d’information elle-même, toutes les fonctionnalités de Luxid® sont accessibles à travers les Web Services, permettant des intégrations riches avec d’autres applications comme les systèmes de gestion de contenu, les portails, les moteurs de recherche, les plateformes d’archivage et de gestion de processus métier, les chaînes éditoriales, ainsi que les outils analytiques.

Grâce à ces évolutions, Luxid® 7 permet d’ajouter la valeur de l’intelligence sémantique à vos applications tout en restant entièrement alignés avec vos processus de gestion d’ontologie ou de taxonomie.

Luxid® 7 s’appuie sur la Skill Cartridge® Library de TEMIS, une gamme d’extracteurs d’information métier et comprend la suite d’outils Luxid® Content Enrichment Studio, permettant de créer, maintenir et évaluer la qualité des Skill Cartridges® de manière industrielle. Luxid® 7 est un outil puissant pour les membres de la Communauté Luxid®, car ils peuvent désormais importer en quelques minutes n’importe quel thésaurus ou taxonomie pour enrichir la place de marché du portail communautaire avec de nouvelles ressources d’annotation innovantes.

Luxid® 7 est disponible dès aujourd’hui via TEMIS, son réseau de partenaires et d’intégrateurs, et sera présenté lors d’un événement de lancement le 2 octobre prochain à la Maison de la Recherche à Paris auquel vous pouvez vous inscrire ici : http://www.temis.com/fr/events.

TEMIS Integrates Ontology Management and Semantic Enrichment in Luxid® 7

Luxid7Luxid® 7’s architecture simplifies key information management workflow for accelerated deployment and lower cost of ownership

 

 

New York, NY – July 1st, 2014 – TEMIS, the leading provider of Semantic Content Enrichment solutions for the Enterprise, today announced the launch of Luxid® 7, the seventh generation of its flagship semantic content enrichment platform. With a new, significantly redesigned internal architecture, Luxid® 7 offers an even more scalable and robust semantic enrichment pipeline, and now also includes a dedicated ontology management tool, providing its users with an industry-first integrated workflow which is more powerful and more efficient.

 

An organization’s ontology – or its subset called taxonomy – describes the objects that are essential to its business (e.g. products, regions, projects, …) and their relationships. Semantic enrichment provides a scalable mechanism to recognize and capture the mentions of such objects and relationships – so-called triples – that are hidden in plain text. In recent years, ontologies and semantic enrichment have become critical to efficiently exploit unstructured content, but they are most often disconnected, requiring intensive, time-consuming, collaboration between domain experts, IT and linguistics experts, to ensure quality results. Luxid® 7 bridges this gap by providing an integrated workflow, thereby considerably reducing the associated time to market and overall costs.

 

“Luxid® 7 is a powerful and highly scalable semantic enrichment platform, yet it offers simple-to-use, intuitive interfaces for business users and subject matter experts, and easy-to-integrate REST Web Services,” said Daniel Mayer, VP Product & Marketing, TEMIS. “This means our customers can enjoy efficient, integrated workflows, all the while deploying the added value of semantics in all their applications in a fraction of the time required with a disconnected workflow,” he added. “Our intent is to accelerate adoption within customer organizations and make systems integrators more autonomous in delivering high quality services to their own customers.”

 

NLP-enabled ontology management workflow is simpler, more efficient, and more powerful

An entirely new component of the Luxid® platform, Luxid® Webstudio is a natively multi-user, collaborative web application enabling users to create, edit and maintain an ontology while governing the way ontological objects are recognized by the Luxid® semantic enrichment pipeline. It also leverages the platform’s Natural Language Processing layer to

  • Preview in real time the results of the semantic enrichment process when applied to users’ corpus of documents. This enables users to rapidly see and correct gaps between ontology and real world semantic enrichment, directly within the Webstudio interface, for example by adding variants or adjusting extraction mechanisms.
  • Suggest relevant objects mentioned in the user’s corpus that are not yet included in the ontology. This feature can be extended with any Skill Cartridge® to suggest new objects and relationships based on linguistic patterns, statistics, or machine learning. In this spirit, Webstudio also embeds a Wikipedia-based Skill Cartridge® that suggests synonyms for any given concept. These suggestions can help non Subject Matter Experts to build their own ontologies too.

These powerful features make end-users more autonomous in creating or maintaining an ontology and the corresponding semantic enrichment pipeline. This translates into a considerably simplified and accelerated workflow, enabling improved time-to-market and lower total cost of ownership.

 

Streamlined, Big Data architecture offers improved scalability and robust integration options

Luxid® Annotation Server is TEMIS’s flagship natural language processing pipeline. Supporting 20 languages and leveraging Skill Cartridges® – the specialized information extraction modules popularized by TEMIS – Luxid® Annotation Server lends itself to a broad range of usage scenarios thanks to its comprehensive range of information extraction engines based on syntactical, statistical, taxonomical, and machine-learning algorithms. In its 7th generation, the pipeline has also been rethought from the ground up to offer

  • A simplified internal architecture exploiting a single data model that reduces overhead, improves CPU utilization and efficiently lends itself to a variety of scale-in and scale-out configurations, for real-time, high-availability or batch content processing applications. Luxid® Annotation Server plays well in both cloud and Big Data (Hadoop) deployments, and flexibly processes ever-increasing volumes of unstructured content.
  • Comprehensive REST Web Services enabling easy integration into any application or workflow. Beyond information extraction itself, virtually all Luxid® features are accessible through Web Services, enabling rich integrations that work hand-in-hand with other applications such as content management systems, portals, search engines, archival and case management platforms, editorial workflow tools, as well as analytics applications.

Thanks to these evolutions, Luxid® 7 provides users with an unparalleled ability to add the value of semantic intelligence to their existing applications in complete coordination with their ontology or taxonomy management processes.

 

Luxid® 7 leverages TEMIS’s updated Skill Cartridge® Library, a range of off-the shelf, application-specific information extractors, and includes its Content Enrichment Studio suite of tools, ensuring the industrial creation, maintenance and quality evaluation of Skill Cartridges®. Luxid® 7 is a powerful tool for the Luxid® Community, enabling users in a matter of minutes to import any thesaurus or taxonomy and consequently populate the website’s Marketplace with new and innovative annotation resources.

 

Webinar and Early Access Program
Luxid® 7 will be showcased by TEMIS during a dedicated webinar on July 17th (please register here) and will simultaneously be made available through TEMIS and its network of partners and system integrators. TEMIS is also launching a SaaS Early-Access program that offers customers interested in fast-track access to the product a convenient way to evaluate it. Interested parties are invited to make themselves known to their regular TEMIS point of contact or through TEMIS’s contact page.
