Category: Semantic technologies (Page 1 of 72)

Our coverage of semantic technologies goes back to the early 90s when search engines focused on searching structured data in databases were looking to provide support for searching unstructured or semi-structured data. This early Gilbane Report, Document Query Languages – Why is it so Hard to Ask a Simple Question?, analyses the challenge back then.

Semantic technology is a broad topic that includes all natural language processing, as well as the semantic web, linked data processing, and knowledge graphs.

Ontotext releases Ontotext Metadata Studio 3.7

Ontotext, a provider of enterprise knowledge graph (EKG) technology and semantic database engines, announced the availability of Ontotext Metadata Studio (OMDS) 3.7, an all-in-one environment that facilitates the creation, evaluation, and quality improvement of text analytics services. This latest release provides out-of-the-box, rapid natural language processing (NLP) prototyping and development so organizations can iteratively create a text analytics service that best serves their domain knowledge. 

As part of Ontotext’s AI-in-Action initiative, which helps data scientists and engineers benefit from the AI capabilities of its products, the latest version enables users to tag content with Common English Entity Linking (CEEL), text analytics service. CEEL is trained to tag mentions of people, organizations, and locations to their representation in Wikidata – the public knowledge graph that includes close to 100 million entity instances. With OMDS, organizations can recognize approximately 40 million Wikidata concepts, and  streamline information extraction from text and enrichment of databases and knowledge graphs. Organizations can:

  • Automate tagging and categorization of content to facilitate more efficient discovery, reviews, and knowledge synthesis. 
  • Enrich content, achieve precise search, improve SEO, and enhance the performance of LLMs and downstream analytics.
  • Streamline information extraction from large volumes of unstructured content and analyze market trends.

WordLift introduces Content Generation Tool

WordLift announced a WordLift Content Generation Tool, technology for content generation that seamlessly integrates the capabilities of Large Language Models (LLMs) and incorporates a compound network of Knowledge Graphs (KG).

At the heart of WordLift is the Knowledge Graph. It’s a dynamic, interconnected web of information. It’s mapping every piece of information, fact, and relationship. It creates a rich tapestry that breathes life into your content. It isn’t only data; it’s a living, evolving entity that understands context, relationships, and nuances. By leveraging these graphs built using WordLift, we guide the LLMs, ensuring they remain on the right path, enriching content with depth and relevance, enabling a more reliable and accurate way of exploiting LLMs.

Key features and technologies: 

  • Structured Data Integration, making content more readable and recognizable for search engines like Google.
  • Knowledge Graph Creation, with the help of AI, allows search engines to comprehend the structure of your content.
  • Content Recommendation System can suggest products to users and integrate clickable cards, widgets, and shopping cart banners.
  • Generative AI-powered content creation to scale content production through AI within the company’s guidelines and TOV.
  • Integration with Data Studio facilitates the creation of shareable, comprehensive reports. launches AI platform for Life Sciences announced availability of the Platform for Life Sciences. With the Platform for Life Sciences, teams can access advanced natural language understanding capabilities, learning methodologies, 3rd-party large language models like BioBert and Bio-GPT as well as customizable pre-built knowledge models to build custom solutions.

Through a hybrid AI approach combining natural language tools, enterprise language models and machine learning, the Platform for Life Sciences shifts the way unstructured medical and scientific data is monitored, understood, analyzed and collated. Teams can access knowledge and insights trapped in medical articles, reports, press releases, clinical research, customer/patient interactions, consent forms, etc. as well as up-to-date knowledge available based on standards like MeSH, UMLS Conditions & Interventions and IUPAR. Pharmaceutical and Life Sciences teams can:

Expert[.]ai and Reveal Group announced a partnership to help organizations extend the value in intelligent automation programs with natural language processing and understanding (NLP/NLU). Robotic process automation (RPA) makes organizations more profitable and responsive, streamlining enterprise workflows and enhancing employee engagement and productivity by removing mundane tasks from their workdays. By adding NLP/NLU to RPA, enterprises now have the ability to increase the flexibility and scalability of automation, expanding deployment to more complex use cases and business processes by making sense of unstructured language data. Unstructured data is critical for organizations to be able to understand, analyze and use it to enable a real intelligent automation across the entirety of an enterprise data assets.
The hybrid AI platform complements the Reveal Group’s expertise in intelligent automation services. With, NLP outputs, including intent, automatic categorization, emotional and behavioral traits identification, entity extraction and sentiment analysis, can be deployed and delivered  by Reveal Group to automate multiple use cases, from common cross-industry use cases (email triage in customer services, data analysis, comparison and extraction in legal departments) to more industry-oriented processes (claims management in insurance companies, loan origination and customer onboarding in banking and financial services.).
