Metacode Technologies Inc., announced that iSyndicate will incorporate Metacode’s Metatagger technology in its SmartContent initiative to dynamically link any public company’s ticker symbol appearing in news articles to relevant information about that company. Metacode’s Metatagger scans iSyndicate text to identify company names and ticker symbols. Metatagger draws from a Metacode company vocabulary to automatically recognize company names. Currently, Metacode’s company vocabulary contains over 10,000 automatically generated company names. These are harvested from a variety of sources, including stock exchange records. Metacode enhances the vocabulary set by adding company nicknames and abbreviations. SmartContent is scheduled for release on June 26, 2000. www.isyndicate.com, www.metacode.com
