ABBYY to Showcase Its Compreno Semantic Technology at CONNECT 2015 – Melbourne

On April 21-22 2015, ABBYY is to showcase its text semantic analysis system named Compreno at CONNECT 2015 in Melbourne. CONNECT is a large annual trade show organised in partnership with the Victorian Government, which runs together with 11 business summits. Entry is free to the exhibition and also the Keynote Theatre on the exhibition floor.

Visitors to the CONNECT 2015 exhibition will get to experience the enhancements for unstructured data management that  ABBYY has developed utilising Compreno’s natural language processing (NLP) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies.

ABBYY Compreno is the result of over 15 years of linguistic research by ABBYY to bring machine analysis a step closer to human text processing. Unlike technologies based on statistic algorithms, which do not actually “know” anything about the language and can therefore only learn from the concept frequencies and co-occurrences in the text, ABBYY Compreno Technology accurately identifies entities, facts and relationships between them — powering business processes that depend on reliable and granular content analysis.

It is at the heart of a new generation of intelligent capture and language-based analytic solutions launched by the company: ABBYY Intelligent Search, ABBYY Info Extractor and ABBYY Smart Classifier.

A presentation from Yury Koriukin, CEO ABBYY Russia and MD ABBYY Australia entitled “Computer understanding of Natural Language - Gaining insight by making full use of unstructured data, the next step towards AI (Artificial Intelligence)” is scheduled for Tuesday 21st April 2015: 2:00pm - 2:25pm in the Keynote Theatre on the exhibition floor.

“Language-based insight into unstructured information will open up new opportunities to action information and improve critical business processes that mitigate risks, increase efficiency and drive revenue,” said Koriukin.

ABBYY is also participating in a CONNECT 2015 Business Summit roundtable on Wednesday 22nd April from 1:40pm – 3:10pm on the topic of “How and where can Natural Language Processing Technologies (AI) be used to enhance the outcomes for current and future business requirements?”     

ABBYY Compreno has been developed for intellectual information search based on abstractly defined content and expressed ideas/involved subjects (regardless of specific terminology and vocabulary used), as opposed to currently widely used keyword searching.

Documents and content units are rarely written in a standardized language which always uses the same concepts and sentence structures to describe the same content. As a result, similar meaning can be expressed in multiple ways (e. g. “beautiful-looking, aesthetically appealing painting” vs. “cool pic”); on the other hand, same words can mean totally different things e.g.:

“can” = “be able” 

“can” = “container”.

While this rarely constitutes a problem for human text understanding, it usually means an insuperable obstacle for a keyword-based machine search and text mining.

At  CONNECT 2015 ABBYY will also be showcasing its traditional core technologies of Image Processing/Capture, OCR/ICR/OMR, Data Capture, PDF and Linguistics available as Technologies (for integration with third party solutions), end user Products and Enterprise Solutions across Mobile, Desktop and Enterprise Platforms.

ABBYY representatives can be found in the main Exhibition Hall at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre.
