New York, NY – October 13, 2011 – TEMIS, the leading provider of Text Analytics Solutions for the Enterprise, today announced the launch of the next generation of Luxid®, its flagship semantic content enrichment solution.
Luxid® 6 is a powerful and robust semantic tagging platform which automatically extracts relevant information (entities, topics, events, sentiments), identifies relationships residing in unstructured data and facilitates links between similar and related documents.
Luxid® 6 optimizes the management of Enterprise content through the capture and structuring of targeted information. The software also enhances the utilization of content within an Enterprise’s key workflows such as competitive intelligence, research and innovation, voice of the consumer and reputation management.
Luxid® 6 brings unparalleled capabilities to governments, powering their mission-critical applications such as financial fraud detection, homeland security, and risk prevention.
Luxid® 6 also is a tremendous ally for digital publishers and content providers, who design, develop and market ever more innovative, targeted and flexible information products.
“TEMIS takes strong professional pride in the quality of Luxid® 6, which delivers to the market a seamless integration of semantic content enrichment in key enterprise applications and business processes”, said Eric Brégand, CEO of TEMIS. “The result of both our innovation spirit and close dealings with customers throughout Europe and North America, Luxid® 6 is expected to generate broader adoption of our market leading content enrichment technologies across a large community of partners and users“, added Brégand.
Pragmatic and efficient content enrichment strategies
As a complement to its existing semantic tagging techniques, Luxid® 6 now features three innovative approaches to content enrichment which adapt to virtually any domain and use case:
• Taxonomy Skill Cartridges® streamline and accelerate the use of an existing taxonomy to rapidly enrich document assets;
• Rule-Based Skill Cartridges® capture domain experts’ reasoning through an easy-to-use interface to immediately apply it to content;
• Machine-learning Skill Cartridges® replicate experts’ tagging strategies after preliminary training on an annotated corpus.
These three new strategies accelerate deployments while simultaneously reducing their complexity by taking advantage of existing enterprise assets (i.e., taxonomies, domain knowledge and annotated corpus).
Content Enrichment Studio for greater customer autonomy
Luxid® 6 Content Enrichment Studio is an integrated suite of tools enabling the design and optimization of Skill Cartridges®:
• Knowledge Editor guides the quick and easy creation of annotators based on taxonomies and thesauri;
• Annotation Workbench assesses and optimizes the quality of Skill Cartridges®;
• Category Workbench enables the rapid development of Skill Cartridges® for auto-categorization projects;
• Skill Cartridge® Builder helps define precise and powerful semantic extraction rules.
Overall, Content Enrichment Studio streamlines semantic developments and increases the autonomy of both customers and partners.
Semantics extended throughout the enterprise information system
Luxid® 6 integrates into a growing list of CMS and Web CMS (SharePoint, Alfresco, Nuxeo, Drupal), and generates rich semantic metadata that will be leveraged to enhance management, access and distribution of information. By automating the contribution of metadata, Luxid® 6 allows users to focus on value-added tasks while administrators can better analyze enterprise information assets and optimize their management.
Semantic metadata generated by Luxid® 6 enables faceted search and navigation, similar-documents recommendation and linking to other content or knowledge bases in compliance with semantic web standards (RDF, RDFa, Microdata).
Embedding content enrichment within different third party applications brings significant productivity gains to the enterprise as well as an enhanced search navigation experience for end users.
Version 6 of Luxid® optimizes the knowledge extraction process, makes annotator developments more efficient and brings semantic metadata to the whole information system, thereby representing a key milestone towards the mainstream acceptance of semantic content enrichment.
Luxid®6 is available now through TEMIS and its network of partners and system integrators.
