Daedalus Takes Meaning-As-A-Service To Excel, GATE And CMS Systems

meaningasaserviceDaedalus (which The Semantic Web Blog originally covered here) has just made its Textalytics meaning-as-a-service APIs available for Excel and GATE (General Architecture for Text Engineering), a JAVA suite of tools used for natural language processing tasks, including information extraction in many languages. Connecting its semantic analysis tools with these systems is one step in a larger plan to extend its integration capabilities with more API plug-ins.

“For us, integration options are a way to lower barriers to adoption and to foster the development of an ecosystem around Textalytics,” says Antonio Matarranz, who leads marketing and sales for Daedalus. The three main ecosystem scenarios, he says, include personal productivity tools, of which the Excel add-in is an example, and NLP environments, of which GATE is an example. “But UIMA (Unstructured Information Management Applications) is also a target,” he says. The list also is slated to include content management systems and search engines, among them open source systems like WordPress, Drupal, and Elasticsearch.

SindiceTech Helps Enterprises Build Private Linked Data Clouds

Last week The Semantic Web Blog covered the launch of the SindiceTech Assisted SPARQL Editor as an open source project, noting that SparQLed also is part of SindiceTech’s commercial suite for large enterprises building private linked data clouds. This week, we’ll dive a little deeper into SindiceTech and its progress since the founders of the Sindice web of data search engine turned their attention to focusing on the commercial application of its technology as a real-time semantic warehousing infrastructure, which leverages cloud computing for integrating and normalizing the massive amounts of data the enterprise must deal with.

 

As SindiceTech founder and CEO Giovanni Tummarello explains, companies actually approached his team to help them make a reality of their visions to use RDF and SPARQL, as the best knowledge representation and querying technologies available, by providing the missing scalability and stability. Sindice.com was evidence that the technology the team had developed could answer these enterprises’ needs; currently there are about 700 million semantically marked-up web pages indexed in the Sindice.com search engine, with a live updated index of some 80 billion triples daily. Its database is over 5 terabytes.
