We extract statements

Coping with today's information overload is a difficult task. For a long time, natural language has been considered to be an extremely complex and abstract construct that cannot be managed by technology. With the rapid advance of natural language processing, this assumption proves wrong.

Search Concept's unique method combines proprietary in-house algorithms and tools as well as research results from the world's leading institutions in the fields of natural language processing and information extraction. Furthermore, we combine the rigour of rule-based methods with the flexibility of machine learning techniques in order to achieve an exact understanding of information on a single statement level.

The annotation process

This happens in the following way:

  • raw data is obtained by web monitoring and by importing private sources from our business clients
  • on the basis of information extraction technology, our semantic annotation machine processes the data to extract analysis objects, key performance indicators, event location
  • our reasoner applies complex decision algorithms in order to calculate various scores such as the sentiment, direction and magnitude of key performance indicators, and the strength of beliefs and expectations
