TEMIS Integrates Ontology Management and Semantic Enrichment in Luxid® 7
Luxid® 7's architecture simplifies key information management workflow for accelerated deployment and lower cost of ownership
NEW YORK, NY, ÉTATS-UNIS - Jul 1, 2014 - TEMIS, the leading provider of Semantic Content Enrichment solutions for the Enterprise, today announced the launch of Luxid® 7, the seventh generation of its flagship semantic content enrichment platform. With a new, significantly redesigned internal architecture, Luxid® 7 offers an even more scalable and robust semantic enrichment pipeline, and now also includes a dedicated ontology management tool, providing its users with an industry-first integrated workflow which is more powerful and more efficient.
An organizations ontology - or its subset called taxonomy - describes the objects that are essential to its business (e.g. products, regions, projects, …) and their relationships. Semantic enrichment provides a scalable mechanism to recognize and capture the mentions of such objects and relationships - so-called triples - that are hidden in plain text. In recent years, ontologies and semantic enrichment have become critical to efficiently exploit unstructured content, but they are most often disconnected, requiring intensive, time-consuming, collaboration between domain experts, IT and linguistics experts, to ensure quality results. Luxid® 7 bridges this gap by providing an integrated workflow, thereby considerably reducing the associated time to market and overall costs.
Luxid® 7 is a powerful and highly scalable semantic enrichment platform, yet it offers simple-to-use, intuitive interfaces for business users and subject matter experts, and easy-to-integrate REST Web Services, said Daniel Mayer, VP Product & Marketing, TEMIS. This means our customers can enjoy efficient, integrated workflows, all the while deploying the added value of semantics in all their applications in a fraction of the time required with a disconnected workflow, he added. Our intent is to accelerate adoption within customer organizations and make systems integrators more autonomous in delivering high quality services to their own customers.
NLP-enabled ontology management workflow is simpler, more efficient, and more powerful
An entirely new component of the Luxid® platform, Luxid® Webstudio is a natively multi-user, collaborative web application enabling users to create, edit and maintain an ontology while governing the way ontological objects are recognized by the Luxid® semantic enrichment pipeline. It also leverages the platforms Natural Language Processing layer to
These powerful features make end-users more autonomous in creating or maintaining an ontology and the corresponding semantic enrichment pipeline. This translates into a considerably simplified and accelerated workflow, enabling improved time-to-market and lower total cost of ownership.
Streamlined, Big Data architecture offers improved scalability and robust integration options
Luxid® Annotation Server is TEMISs flagship natural language processing pipeline. Supporting 20 languages and leveraging Skill Cartridges® - the specialized information extraction modules popularized by TEMIS - Luxid® Annotation Server lends itself to a broad range of usage scenarios thanks to its comprehensive range of information extraction engines based on syntactical, statistical, taxonomical, and machine-learning algorithms. In its 7th generation, the pipeline has also been rethought from the ground up to offer
Thanks to these evolutions, Luxid® 7 provides users with an unparalleled ability to add the value of semantic intelligence to their existing applications in complete coordination with their ontology or taxonomy management processes.
Luxid® 7 leverages TEMISs updated Skill Cartridge® Library, a range of off-the shelf, application-specific information extractors, and includes its Content Enrichment Studio suite of tools, ensuring the industrial creation, maintenance and quality evaluation of Skill Cartridges®. Luxid® 7 is a powerful tool for the Luxid® Community, enabling users in a matter of minutes to import any thesaurus or taxonomy and consequently populate the websites Marketplace with new and innovative annotation resources.
