Connecting the dots

Retresco’s seman­tic app­li­ca­ti­ons pro­vi­des con­tex­tu­al ana­ly­sis and auto­ma­ti­on fea­tures by app­ly­ing struc­tu­red data to unst­ruc­tu­red con­tent. It ana­ly­ses the full text of con­tent in all for­mats, and app­lies rules that auto­ma­te clas­si­fi­ca­ti­on deci­si­ons. It is an easy and high­ly accu­ra­te way of tag­ging con­tent by:
  • Per­son
  • Loca­ti­on
  • Orga­ni­sa­ti­on
  • Event
  • Pro­duct
  • Key­word

This seman­tic meta­da­ta is the foun­da­ti­on of increa­sing the value, acces­si­bi­li­ty, and dyna­mics of any con­tent. It pro­vi­des the supe­ri­or dep­th, coverage and clas­si­fi­ca­ti­on by extrac­ting the hid­den know­ledge buried wit­hin your con­tent.

To achie­ve this, we use Natu­ral Lan­guage Pro­ces­sing (NLP) to build robust seman­tic app­li­ca­ti­ons that tag all tex­tu­al for­mats of con­tent, inclu­ding docu­ments, arti­cles, user com­ments, and blogs, to deter­mi­ne rele­vant key­wor­ds and topics.

Dr. Hau­ke Jans­sen, head of doku­men­ta­ti­on at Der Spie­gel, spo­ke to Digi­day about on how Retresco’s seman­tic app­li­ca­ti­ons helps pro­vi­de rele­vant rese­arch to Der Spiegel’s 70-per­son fact-che­cking team:

It’s a research instrument to organise information in a differentiated way, better than Google can.”
