Mar 10, 2006

Inxight Software, a provider of enterprise software solutions for information discovery, has announced the general availability of Inxight ThingFinder SDK 4.0 and Inxight ThingFinder Professional SDK 4.0.

The Inxight ThingFinder Software Development Kit (SDK) provides advanced text analysis technology that automatically identifies and extracts entities from any text data source, in multiple languages. Inxight ThingFinder automatically identifies and extracts more than 35 entities--the who, what, when, and how, such as people, dates, places, companies, email addresses, geo-coordinates, facilities, etc. The new ThingFinder SDK 4.0 offers major feature enhancements, including a new Java Native Interface and pronoun co-reference resolution, as well as improved processing speed.

ThingFinder Professional 4.0 is an extensible extraction engine, providing a suite of capabilities to support user-extensible discovery and extraction of entities, relationships, and events in more than 30 languages. A complete linguistic parse is available to create the most accurate patterns possible. Pre-defined event and relationship extraction packs are available, including corporate and business intelligence, such as mergers and acquisitions, as well as counter-terrorism and law enforcement. ThingFinder Professional 4.0 SDK delivers new Relationship and Event rules to get users closer to fact extraction out-of-the-box, including: Familial and interpersonal relationships; People's attributes; People's appearance; Organizational relationships; and People and organizations' actions. The Inxight ThingFinder 4.0 and ThingFinder Professional 4.0 SDKs are generally available now.
