Inxight Software, Inc., announced the general availability of Inxight ThingFinder Advanced, which extends the power of Inxight’s entity extraction by enabling the definition of custom, pattern-based entities. Out of the box, the original Inxight ThingFinder automatically identifies and extracts 27 key entities – such as people, dates, places, companies or other things – from any text data source, in multiple languages. Using Inxight ThingFinder, developers can maximize and extend the value of their applications by enabling end-users to find the most important pieces of information within large volumes of documents. The new Inxight ThingFinder Advanced is an add-on module that extends ThingFinder’s power by allowing users to define custom patterns of tokens in regular expression syntax. Enriched with deep understanding of natural language, ThingFinder Advanced can extract such custom entities as date/timestamps, chemical compound names or formulae, serial or part numbers, internal project codes, etc. ThingFinder Advanced supports discovery of entities and languages not supported out of the box. The 20 languages ThingFinder Advanced currently supports include: Arabic, Bokmal, Danish, Dutch, English, English MTF, Farsi, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Nynorsk, Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, Swedish, and Traditional Chinese. More languages are planned for a future release. Inxight ThingFinder Advanced is generally available now.
