Discover and enrich knowledge by analysing documents with AI

When it comes to organizing or making complex information accessible, or helping researchers or analysts to discover new information, structured vocabularies (lexicons, dictionaries, thesauri, taxonomies, etc.) and, more broadly, knowledge bases, play an important role. But they still need to be constantly updated, which is a long, tedious and difficult task. Legal intelligence is a … Continue reading Discover and enrich knowledge by analysing documents with AI

It is a generally accepted practice that an auditor reviewing agreements or an analyst screening litterature proceeds with random checks simply because it is humanly impossible and much too costly to process each individual document. At the same time society … Continue reading Random check is dead, long live exhaustivity

Jumpstart your Machine Learning efforts by importing structured knowledge

Introduction Machine Learning approaches in NLP have been shown to be able to solve a wide range of tasks after being trained from scratch on an appropriate training corpus. While this is impressive, it often does not correspond to the demand in many real-world scenarios. Often relevant prior knowledge exists – in the case of … Continue reading Jumpstart your Machine Learning efforts by importing structured knowledge

Make the long road to augmented applications shorter by “do-it-yourself NLP”

Introduction Natural language processing (NLP) techniques have made tremendous progress during the last couple of years, thanks notably to algorithms such as Neural Networks which have surpassed traditional approaches with rules-based systems. Examples include Machine Translation (DeepL, Google Translate…) or Speech To Text (Siri…). Information Extraction, a subcategory of NLP, is also highly impacted.  What … Continue reading Make the long road to augmented applications shorter by “do-it-yourself NLP”
