January 7, 2011 – Sentiment360, Inc., a social media monitoring and analytics company, has announced that it has completed the acquisition of artificial intelligence text mining technology from Enkia Corporation.

This interesting piece of news was found on dBusiness News in their article, “Social Media Company, Sentiment360, Acquires Advanced Conversation Mining Technology from Enkia Corporation.” The artificial intelligence technology of Enkia will allow Sentiment360 to deliver semantic search capabilities. This new feature will give business users intuitive and powerful real-time access to online social media conversations and trends.

This seems to be a good blend of semantic technology and natural language processing, and to see it deliver strategic search results in a social media environment will be an added bonus.
