Big data has spawned a new term – content intelligence. It is the combination of semantic technology and information science that allows machines to model, analyze, and visualize the human intelligence within an organization. That includes the reasoning processes that hide in e-mails, contracts, technical documents, meeting notes, etc. This interesting information came from DATAVERSITY in their article, “What is Content Intelligence?

No matter how powerful, computers can’t derive meaningful information from unstructured data. Content intelligence within an enterprise can leverage the human intelligence within that data to generate new revenue streams, increase productivity and save money.

It increases findability as well. Content intelligence is the technology and approach that makes unstructured information self-describing. This self-description allows content-based information to be described in the same way as structured data and then combined into a single source for analysis and exploration.
