Semaphore Version 5 from Smartlogic coming soon.

An indexing software company— now morphed into a semantic AI outfit — Smartlogic promises Version 5 of its enterprise platform, Semaphore, will be available any time now.

The company modestly presents the announcement below the virtual fold in the company newsletter, “The Semaphore—Smartlogic’s Quarterly Newsletter—December 2019.” The General Access release should be out by the end of January. We’re succinctly informed because in indexing succinct is good:

“Semaphore 5 embodies innovative technologies and strategies to deliver a unified user experience, enhanced interoperability, and flexible integration:

*A single platform experience – modules are tightly integrated.

*Intuitive and simplified installation and administration – software can be download and configured with minimal clicks. An updated landing page allows you to quickly navigate modules and monitor status.

*Improved coupling of classification and language services, as well as improved performance.

*Updated the linguistic model and fact extraction capabilities.

*New – Document Semantic Analyzer – a performant content analyzer that provides detailed classification and language services results.

*New branding that aligns modules with capabilities and functionality.

“Semaphore 5 continues to focus around 3 core areas – Model & collaborate; fact extraction, auto-classification & language services; and integrate & visualize – in a modular platform that allows you to add capabilities as your business needs evolve. As you upgrade to Semaphore 5, you will be able to take advantage of the additional components and capabilities incorporated in your licensed modules.”

Semaphore is available on-premise, in the cloud, or a combination. Smartlogic (not to be confused with the custom app company Smartlogic) was founded in 2006 and is based in San Jose, California. The company owns SchemaLogic. Yep, we’re excited too. Maybe NLP, predictive analytics, and quantum computing technology will make a debut in this release. If not in software, perhaps in the marketing collateral?
