Expert System recently announced that ANSA has chosen the Cogito semantic technology to improve access in its ANSAFoto image database. The worlds of news and publishing have both grown more and more dependent on technologies that enable filtering to access only the content you are looking for, along with real-time sharing, both quickly and easily.

In response, the ANSA press agency has implemented what it describes as the first image search engine that uses semantic technology for analysis of captions in English and Italian. Users may browse the agency’s collection of millions of photographs using advanced search capabilities that are more intuitive, and with an approach that mirrors the way that users speak and think.

Market Wired brought this exciting news to our attention in their article, “Press Agency ANSA chooses Expert System Semantic Search for ANSAFoto Image Archive.” Expert System’s semantic technology enables automatic processing for text accompanying ANSA photos, and categorizes them according to a predefined taxonomy.

Semantic technology continues to grow and expand its uses. Access Innovations, developer of the M.A.I. machine-assisted indexing system, specializes in complex coding, tagging, and indexing.
