The University of Wisconsin-Madison has developed a computer that performed as well or better than humans when it comes to the task of extracting data from scientific journals and entering it into a database.
Did you know the human retina can transmit visual information to the brain at roughly the rate of an Ethernet connection? In comparison, reading text transmits information at roughly the rate of a dial-up modem.
There are many pieces that need to fit together to implement a semantic strategy. Just as the instruments in an orchestra combine to provide a beautiful sound, a semantic strategy can provide a wonderful platform for your user community to enjoy. To really make it work, however, you need to understand each instrument and how to organize them for the best effect. Register today and plan to attend the webinar – Orchestrating an Effective Semantic Strategy Webinar on December 16 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (Mountain Time).
Many automated knowledge extraction and processing applications rely on computing semantic relatedness between textual labels representing biological and medical concepts. Because of the large amount of new findings, most methods benefit from making use of highly specific resources.
Scope e-Knowledge Center has launched their content enrichment solution – SemantiCz. This new product combines the foundational building blocks of abstracts from the ConSCIse platform and ontology from the diSCOver platform.
Legal entity identifiers are a form of semantic data. The lack of legal entity identifiers is partly at fault for the failure of investment banking firms in 2008 and after. The vital data was lacking when crucial business decisions needed to be made by organizations. Accessing risk exposure was compromised and the fallout was harsh.
Words like cognitive, intuitive, and semantic are often used interchangeably. However, these terms have distinct definitions that make them very different.
The rules for academic publishing really haven’t changed in centuries. Once, there was a large percentage of the populace who were skeptical of academic research when Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society started began its publication life in 1665. To make the system work against that pushback, the method had to be codified. As a result, access to research material was difficult to attain, to the extent that scientists as late as the 19th Century actively condoned criminal behavior just to have access to corpses for study and presentation.
Though it is a little short notice, it seemed important to let you know of a workshop at the 2014 Conference on Empirical Methods on Natural Language Processing (EMNLP) in Doha, Qatar, called “TEXAS: Taxonomy Extraction with Applications in Semantics” that may be of interest to those in the field.
IBM recently introduced Watson Analytics, a natural language-based cognitive service that can provide immediate and simple access to powerful predictive and visual analytic tools for businesses.
