Words like cognitive, intuitive, and semantic are often used interchangeably. However, these terms have distinct definitions that make them very different.

Semantic technologies have permeated every aspect of the enterprise architecture and cloud universe. Cognitive computing cannot be fully achieved without a strong semantic processing substrate that executes across diverse content sources. This interesting information came from InfoWorld in their article, “Cognitive computing can take the semantic Web to the next level.”

Semantic computing is what natural language processing, the heart of cognitive computing, is doing. Data scientists use cognitive computing tools to extract the implicit semantics from unstructured content sources.

Semantic technology requires a special knowledge of terminology and coding to reduce errors. Access Innovations, developer of the M.A.I. machine-assisted indexing system and specializing in complex coding, tagging, and indexing, provides a range of services that deliver tag integrity.
