ExpertSystem majors on semantic analysis, employing a semantic analysis engine and complete semantic network for a complete understanding of text, finding hidden relationships, trends and events, and transforming unstructured information into structured data. Its Cogito semantic technology offers a complete set of features including: semantic search and natural language search, text analytics, development and management of taxonomies and ontologies, automatic categorization, extraction of data and metadata, and natural language processing.
At the heart of Cogito is the Sensigrafo, a rich and comprehensive semantic network, which enables the disambiguation of terms, a major stumbling block in many text analytics technologies. Sensigrafo allows Cogito to understand the meaning of words and context (Jaguar: car or animal?; apple: the fruit or the company?) – a critical differentiator between semantic technology and traditional keyword and statistics based approaches.
Sensigrafo is available in different languages and contains more than 1 million concepts, more than 4 million relationships for the English language alone, and a rich set of attributes for each concept. The Cogito semantic network includes common words, which comprise 90% of all content, and rich vertical domain dictionaries including Corporate & Homeland Security, Finance, Media & Publishing, Oil & Gas, Life Sciences & Pharma, Government and Telecommunications, providing rich contextual understanding that improves precision and recall in the process information retrieval and management.
The technology has found uses in CRM applications, product development, competitive intelligence, marketing and many activities where knowledge sharing is critical.
