Nstein Technologies Inc., a provider of text mining and multilingual information access solutions, has announced the launch of 12 annotators, compliant with the open-source Unstructured Information Management Architecture (UIMA) standard developed by IBM. The UIMA standard provides the foundation for new search-related applications that extract hidden meaning from unstructured information. Nstein's annotators are designed to allow organizations adopting the UIMA standard to expand their content discovery capabilities associated with market intelligence, customer intelligence, and early warning applications.
Nstein's topic-based categorization annotators are now available for the automated tagging of concepts, names of people and organizations, geographic locations, dates, and currencies in unstructured documents. Sentiment-based categorization annotators are also available for the tagging of objective and subjective statements in documents, as well as overall negative or positive statements. Other annotators launched by Nstein include fact finding annotating facts related to human resources movements (hiring, firing, promotion) as well as financial information (mergers and acquisitions, investments, etc.).
