Hakia.com, the semantics oriented meaning-based search engine, is now licensing its Ontological Semantic technology; hakia OntoSem.
hakia OntoSem is a modular, extensible, and adaptable toolset for government, business, education and research applications to enable developers to use the meaning of language and not just text string matching for applications, including:
- information retrieval, analysis, and distribution
- text summarization
- information assurance and security
- machine translation
- ontology support
- terminology standardization
- supply chain automation
OntoSem offers an advanced methodology and technology for natural language processing, the only one of its kind, so far, to access the full meaning of the text it handles. As such, it is also a set of well-developed and constantly improving resources, including a language-independent ontology of thousands of interrelated concepts; an ontology-based English lexicon of 100,000 word senses, and counting (plus, the lexicons for several other languages under construction); and an ontological parser which “translates” every sentence of the text into its text meaning representation, approximating the complete understanding of the sentence by the native speaker.
RiverGlass, Inc., an advanced real-time analytics and intelligent Web information collection and analysis provider, is one of the first companies using OntoSem and has incorporated it into its analytics software.
According to Kirk Dauksavage, CEO of RiverGlass Inc., “We believe that powerful ontological semantics will help optimize the relevancy of advanced real-time analytics and intelligent Web information collection and analysis solutions. We look forward to this partnership with hakia.com.”
