Semantria Goes Pentalingual
January 1, 2013
Semantria is a text analytics and sentiment analysis solutions company. In order to reach a new clientele as well as work with companies with an international base, “Semantria Announces Content Classification and Categorization Functionality in 5 Languages.” Semantria now speaks English, Spanish, French, German, and Portuguese.
To power its categorization functionality, Semantria uses the Concept Matrix. It is a large thesaurus that used Wikipedia in its beta phase. After digesting Wikipedia, the Concept Matrix created lexical connections between every concept within it. Semantria developed the technology with Lexalytics and the Lexalytics Salience 5 engine powers the Concept Matrix. The Concept Matrix is a one of a kind tool that organizes and classifies information:
“Seth Redmore, VP Product Management and Marketing at Lexalytics, explains; ‘Text categorization requires an understanding of how things are alike. Before the Concept Matrix, you’d have to use a massive amount of training data to “teach” your engine, i.e. ‘documents about food’.’ And, he continues, ‘With the Concept Matrix, the training’s already done, and by providing Semantria a few keywords, it drops your content into the correct categories.’ ”
A piece of software that does all the organizing for you, how amazing is that? If it “ate” Wikipedia and made lexical connections, what could it do with Google, Bing, the entire Internet?
