The Associated Press has selected multilingual natural language processing company Teragram to improve its categorization and entity and events extraction for news content around the world.
The software produced by Teragram associates categories and entity meta-data to improve contectualized relationship and search performance within AP news content.
“The growing use of electronic documents across organizations has created an electronic data maintenance crisis that challenges fast, real-time retrieval and searching,” said Yves Schabes, president and co-founder of Teragram in a statement. “Teragram’s entities and events extraction software automatically detects and extracts concepts, such as celebrities, locations, events and companies, so that organizations like the AP can quickly process news feeds and deliver them in as accurate and as timely a manner as possible.”
