Teragram, a provider of multilingual natural language processing technologies, has announced that its proprietary categorization, entity extraction, and taxonomy management software is used to automatically organize international b-to-b media company Reed Business' (RB) hundreds of online media properties. In addition, RB has integrated Teragram's technologies into its b-to-b search engine offering, Zibb. Zibb scours b-to-b sites from throughout the web and within RB media to find relevant, specific information. Readers of RB online media, such as Variety.com, Electronic Business and Library Journal can find information by category using Teragram's technology. With Zibb, Teragram's software has extended RB site visitors' ability to find relevant, b-to-b specific answers they're looking for, not only from RB sources, but also from throughout the web.
