TEMIS and Convera Sign Technology Transfer Agreement

(PresseBox) (Paris, )
TEMIS, leading provider of Text Mining software has signed a technology transfer agreement with Convera (NASDAQ: CNVR), a leading provider of search technologies to commercial enterprises and government agencies.

Under this agreement, Convera will embed TEMIS’ XeLDA® linguistic engine in four languages (French, Spanish, Russian and German) into its Excalibur™ Web Search Platform.

XeLDA® is a multilingual linguistic engine. It models and standardizes unstructured documents in order to automatically exploit their content. Based on a technology developed through 20 years of research and development, XeLDA® provides advanced Text Mining features enabling textual information processing.

XeLDA® offers a scalable range of services based on natural language processing
components that can be integrated in business applications:

- Automatic identification of the language within each document
- Segmentation of text into sentences
- Split of text into basic lexical units (tokenization)
- Morphological text analysis to return the normalized form (the lemma) and the
potential grammatical categories for all the words identified during the tokenization
stage
- Morpho-syntactic disambiguation to determine the exact grammatical category of a
word according to its context
- Extraction of sequences of words that form noun phrases
- Identification of the context of a word to find the corresponding dictionary entry
(Dictionary lookup)
- Recognition of idiomatic expressions

“Even though English remains the lingua franca for the Web, it is increasingly becoming multilingual in nature, “said Claude Vogel, Chief Technology Officer at Convera. “We are pleased to be working with TEMIS to meet linguistic requirements for authoritative search products.”

“Linguistic information analysis dramatically enhances information retrieval, providing high precision results in answer to full text queries. This relationship fits our strong belief that semantics are key in information retrieval,” added Eric Bregand, CEO of TEMIS.

Note: TEMIS and Convera will co-sponsor the eleventh Search Engine meeting in the United States that will take place in Boston on April 24th and 25th, 2006. http://www.infonortics.com/searchengines/
