Digital Reasoning’s Synthesys machine learning platform (which The Semantic Web Blog initially covered here) this summer should see its Version 3.9 release. The update will build on the 3.8 release, which delivered with its Glance user interface the discovery and investigative capabilities that help information analysts in finance, intelligence and other compliance- and security-sensitive sectors react to findings in user profiles of interest and their associated relationships, activities and risks. Version 3.9 takes on the proactive part of the equation — early risk detection — via its Scout user interface.
Last year, the company honed in on compliance use cases ranging from insider trading to money laundering with Version 3.7 of Synthesys (covered here). There, the technology for discovering the meaning in unstructured data at scale, highlighting important entities in context, was applied to email communications for organizations such as financial institutions that have to be on the lookout for conversations that cross compliance boundaries.
