The United States Patent Office has granted RiseSmart a patent for ontology development for profile matching. PR Newswire brought this interesting information to us in their article, “U.S. Patent Office validates RiseSmart’s innovation in outplacement with broad technology patent.”

The company’s sophisticated SmartMatch™ engine is powered by RiseSmart. It is what gives the company’s career transition services the power of human-like understanding of skills, work experiences and job preferences. This technology has helped to achieve job landing rates 60% faster than the national average.

RiseSmart’s semantic matching technology understands concepts and context to infer deeper meaning and comprehension of an employee’s profile and job opportunities. The ontology is made up of hundreds of thousands of words and classifies millions of job titles into the correct level, functionality and industry. It works in tandem with the company’s service delivery teams and is available in multiple languages.
