InforSense and Linguamatics Announce Partnership in Text Analytics

  • September 07 2006, 1:00am EDT

InforSense Ltd., a leader in integrative analytics platforms, announced that the company has entered into a partnership agreement with Linguamatics, a leading player in Natural Language Processing (NLP) and its use in text search and mining. Under the agreement, InforSense will provide access to Linguamatics I2E (Interactive Information Extraction) software tools from InforSense's text analytics platform, InforSense TextSense, to provide a single, flexible and accessible environment for constructing tailored, high performance text analytics applications. Linguamatics has also joined the InforSense Open Workflow Partner Network as the 25th member.

Linguamatics I2E enables powerful and flexible NLP and ontology based querying over large collections of documents (such as journal articles, patents, news feeds or regulatory documents) in real time through an intuitive graphical user interface. InforSense TextSense, an extension of InforSense KDE specialized to text analytics, provides workflow-based functionality for importing, processing, analyzing and visualizing the contents of large document collections from varied data sources. By using an analytical workflow model, users can rapidly construct and deploy customizable text analytics applications across the enterprise and easily incorporate text analytics into cross-domain data analyses.

"We are very pleased to be working with InforSense and excited about the benefits that this combination of best of breed solutions can provide for our customers," commented David Milward, chief technology officer at Linguamatics. "The combination of InforSense's sophisticated workflow with Linguamatics' I2E text mining software has the potential to make a significant impact on our customers' knowledge discovery activities."

"This is a welcome development that will improve our current post-processing of Linguamatics I2E results using InforSense KDE," said William Hayes, associate director, Library and Information Services, Biogen Idec. "The agile information extraction capabilities of Linguamatics I2E, paired more natively with the powerful analytic tools in InforSense KDE, open up new possibilities for making the most of literature information sources for tactical and strategic decisions, from Pharmaceutical Discovery through to Marketing."

"The rate at which new papers are published means automated text analytics is necessary to quickly deliver the specific knowledge that decision-makers need," said Jonathan Sheldon, Chief Scientific Officer at InforSense. "Linguamatics provides the leading technology for information extraction. Integration of Linguamatics' NLP-based technology and our statistical analysis, machine-learning and visualization technologies enables us to provide mutual customers with a clear competitive advantage through rapid, high-volume text analytics."
