Computing and data is a broad category. Our coverage of computing is largely limited to software, and we are mostly focused on unstructured data, semi-structured data, or mixed data that includes structured data.

Topics include computing platforms, analytics, data science, data modeling, database technologies, machine learning / AI, Internet of Things (IoT), blockchain, augmented reality, bots, programming languages, natural language processing applications such as machine translation, and knowledge graphs.

Zeta Alpha integrates GPT with its semantic neural engine

Zeta Alpha, a neural search and discovery platform, announced they have integrated with OpenAI’s GPT with its semantic neural search engine, to provide more reliable and explainable AI generated answers to enterprise search queries. This capability gives workers the ability to leverage GPT to access knowledge hidden in troves of internal company data.

Generative AI models like GPT tend to ‘hallucinate,’ or give answers that seem plausible, but are not factually correct. This prevents organizations from adopting AI tools for enterprise search and knowledge management. The combination of Zeta Alpha’s intelligent neural search engine and advances in GPT-3 reduce this problem by applying natural language understanding. Other enhancements include:

  • InPars v2, a GPT-powered neural search model that enables fast tuning on synthetic in-domain data without the cost of creating terminology lists and taxonomies.
  • Zeta Alpha enables users to ask a question and get contextually relevant results, automatically saving text to a spreadsheet or note for further analysis, and mapping back to the location where the document is saved for future access.
  • Visualizing the information landscape in a semantic map and interpreting it with summaries by GPT can guide knowledge workers in the right direction to answer important strategic questions.

Section enhancements to help setup and scale Mastodon servers

Section, a cloud-native hosting platform, announced it is making it easier to deploy and scale a Mastodon server; in just a few clicks, developers can use Section’s global platform to ensure a responsive user experience. With the open-source Mastodon software seeing explosive growth in interest and adoption, communities find themselves looking for solutions that can help run self-hosted social networks for a geographically dispersed base of users. Section’s platform automates the management of workloads like Mastodon using easily adjusted, rules-based parameters, making it suited to easily distribute and scale these Mastodon instances globally. Simultaneously, the company has announced support for Persistent Volume storage, better enabling distributed deployment of Mastodon and other complex workloads.

Section’s global, redundant, federated cloud network and multi-cluster deployment automatically re-routes traffic to keep Mastodon instances running while also delivering the benefits of a multi-cluster environment with the ease and simplicity of deploying a single cluster. Mastodon consists of a Ruby on Rails backend, a JavaScript frontend, Sidekiq jobs management and a PostgreSQL relational database. Section distributes the data out to where users and servers are located, leveraging PolyScale’s intelligent serverless caching between the Mastodon application front-end and the back-end PostgreSQL database.

Snowflake to acquire Mobilize.Net’s SnowConvert

Snowflake announced it has signed a definitive agreement for Snowflake to acquire SnowConvert, a suite of tools for efficiently migrating databases to the Data Cloud, from Mobilize.Net.

A key challenge with platform migrations is the code conversion required to ensure that all legacy database functionality can be moved to the cloud with minimal time and effort. The SnowConvert toolkit has long been a preferred solution for migrating customer workloads to Snowflake, using sophisticated automation techniques that reduce the need for manual coding and help ensure migration projects are successful.

After converting more than 1.5 billion lines of code1 with SnowConvert, the toolkit has proven to significantly reduce migration effort and improve the speed of migrating legacy databases to Snowflake through the built-in analysis capabilities at a data-type and procedure level, as well as matching to Snowflake native types. In addition to legacy database conversions, SnowConvert also converts workloads written in Scala and Python, making it easy to transfer that code to Snowflake’s Snowpark developer environment.

Closing of the acquisition is subject to the receipt of required regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions. SnowConvert will expand Snowflake’s professional services footprint in Costa Rica, Colombia, and Bellevue, Washington.

One AI Language solution for developers now in AWS Marketplace

One AI, a platform that enables developers to add language AI to products and services, announced it has entered into a collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS). The relationship allows One AI to offer its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) language AI solutions in the AWS Marketplace, which makes it easy for customers to find, test, buy and deploy software on AWS.

One AI’s advanced natural language processing (NLP) platform allows developers to analyze and process large amounts of text, audio and video data through an application programming interface (API) for a range of use cases, including analyzing and understanding email threads for customer sentiment or reactions, extracting important points in a conversation, examining and breaking down all data from call centers, and determining positive and negative feedback on various subjects from social media posts and product reviews.

Businesses and developers can create their own Language Skills or choose from a library that includes capabilities such as advanced data extraction, transcription, summarization, sentiment analysis, emotion recognition, and action item detection. The library of Language Skills allows businesses and developers to tailor the solution to their specific needs and use-cases.

Lexalytics expands NLP capabilities across foreign languages

Lexalytics, an InMoment company and provider of AI-based, natural language processing (NLP) technology, announced it has improved accuracy and expanded NLP capabilities for 11 non-English languages. Now global brands and businesses can analyze unstructured data natively and benefit from full-featured text analytics to better understand their customers and make more informed decisions across 31 total languages.

While some companies offer a range of NLP features in languages other than English, few cover the sheer number that Lexalytics supports. Many rely on machine translation before processing which can decrease the accuracy of the analysis. Because Lexalytics processes text data in its native language, it can take into account specific nuances and complexities of that language, and better understand the meaning and context of the text.

Lexalytics has expanded feature coverage to include entities, themes, summarization, sentiment (at the document and item level), categorization, and part-of-speech tagging for the following 11 languages: Arabic, Danish, Finnish, Hebrew, Norwegian, Polish, Russian, Swedish, Thai, Turkish and Vietnamese. Lexalytics continues to offer full-featured support for an additional 20 languages. These expanded language capabilities are available for customers of Lexalytics’ Salience, Semantria API, and Spotlight application, as well as InMoment’s XI Platform.
