Semantic technology has rarely been used in industries more than it has in the employment and recruitment field, and the stakes just got even bigger. CareerBuilder recently announced that it has acquired a majority stake in Textkernel, a software company providing semantic recruitment technology to the global market. This interesting news came from PR Newswire in their article, “CareerBuilder Joins Forces with Textkernel to Deliver Powerful, Multilingual Semantic Search and Matching Technologies to Recruiters.”

Textkernel is a strong player in the field of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and natural language processing in the human resources domain as well. Semantic search is its niche. This latest acquisition furthers CareerBuilder’s evolution in this arena.

It is important to choose the right partner in technology, especially when your content is in their hands. Semantic technology is no different. Access Innovations is known as a leader in database production, standards development, and creating and applying taxonomies.
