Inxight Announces Categorizer

Inxight Software, Inc. announced the immediate availability of Inxight Categorizer. Categorizer is an application that efficiently and automatically classifies unstructured information, such as web pages, e-mail, word processing documents, presentations and text, into pre-defined categories to significantly increase the quality and accuracy of online searches. Using patented technology, Categorizer takes classification beyond simple methods such as rule-based systems and pure pattern recognition techniques. Categorizer advances its technology by combining linguistic processing engines with patented mathematic algorithms. For example, the word “ground” can mean ground pepper, the ground that you stand on, or the ground for a wire. Categorizer is able to distinguish between the meanings of the three “grounds” in its context. Another example is the word “teach.” Categorizer identifies and associates words that have the same meaning, depending on how the word is used, like teaches, teaching, and taught. Demonstrating contextual understanding of word “meanings” and relationships of words in sentences directly benefits the accuracy and speed of the categorization process. Moreover, Categorizer maintains its scalability even as the number of categories or documents grows. (For a detailed white paper on Categorizer, go to Features of Categorizer include: Scalability to 100,000 documents per day with a single server; Supports over 70 major document formats including HTML, word processing documents, spreadsheets, presentations, e-mail files, Lotus Notes and plain text; True linguistic support for Western European languages; Out-of-the-box advanced natural language engine categorizes documents based on keywords, concepts and full language analysis; Accuracy improves automatically using an active category learning process; Built-in intelligence adapts to dynamic taxonomies; Supports Oracle data store for high-availability environments; and XML compatibility enables integration to most enterprise portal applications. Inxight Categorizer is available immediately through Inxight corporate sales.
