Semaphore overview PDF

Classification Server, Ontology Manager, Text Miner, Autoclassification, Improved search, Metadata, Search and CMS integrations, Taxonomies and ontologies, Text analytics

Smartlogic‘s Semaphore is the leading Content Intelligence software solution that augments traditional information management systems like enterprise search, content management and business workflow engines by capturing the the hidden intelligence found in unstructured content (ie. important topics, resources and people), creating a model (list, taxonomy or ontology) and then using the model to classify content and enrich it to result in a complete enterprise information management platform.

Text Miner helps build your taxonomy PDF

Text Miner, Taxonomies and ontologies

Smartlogic's Semaphore Text Miner uses complex noun phrase and entity extraction algorithms to analyze files and extract candidate terms and phrases, provide statistical counts and frequencies of the terms in the content, group terms by similar phrase content, and provide a display snippet to see the term in its original context. The mined content is then used to build and enhance a model for review using the actual terms used by the business. Building a classification model this way improves subject matter expert adoption and reduces the taxonomy development cycle.

Why I Need Content Intelligence PDF

Autoclassification, Improved search, Text analytics

Computers have a difficult time determining meaning in unstructured text – and there is too much of it for humans to cope with. Consequently, the vast majority of the enterprise’s human intelligence – those man-years of experience that every organization has – isn't used to drive key organizational decisions. Content intelligence is the solution to this problem and Smartlogic Semaphore is the bridge.

Improve knowledge management from development to manufacturing Video

Classification Server, Ontology Manager, Text Miner, Autoclassification, Improved search, Metadata, Taxonomies and ontologies, Text analytics

Commercializing a promising drug can take 6 to 10 years, followed by a decade long manufacture period which undergoes continuous process improvement. Along the way, the enterprise accumulates information about formulations, manufacturing methods and supply chain details from:

  • A wide variety of groups across the enterprise 
  • With each group using language and vocabulary specific to their business unit
  • Housed in disparte locations and in different formats

Effective knowledge management is essential for bridging these pockets to drive reuse across groups and products. Making content findable decreases development time, avoids manufacturing delays and leads to higher quality.

Hear Merck representatives Adam Duckworth, Associate Director, Knowledge Management Center of Excellence (KM CoE), and Douglas Arnold, Director, Account Manager of Pipeline and Knowledge Management, MMD Information Technology, as they talk about how they're using Semaphore to improve knowledge flow across all stages of the drug development and manufacturing pipeline.

Slips Trips and Falls Value Statement PDF

Text analytics

Each year one in three individuals over the age of seventy-five will experience a fall. In four out of ten incidents the result will lead to hospitalization, a long period of immobilization and recovery, surgery or in some cases death. As the population ages, this problem becomes more acute and more expensive.

Learn how a senior care agency applied the power of Content Intelligence and predictive analytics to their disparate data sources to identify individuals at risk of falling in order to improve patient care and reduce overall costs.

The inforamation was:

  • From different sources; patient records, nurses notes and social workers observations
  • Housed in separate silos
  • In different formats and nomenclature

Using Smartlogic Semphore they automated the process of extracting relevant facts from the individual data stores and associaed them to identify patients at risk. They combined the facts with next-generation graph-based search tools, to explore the content, identify patterns, look for relationships and arrange preventive intervention before a serious event occurred.

Semaphore in a nutshell Video

Classification Server, Ontology Manager, Text Miner, Autoclassification, Improved search, Metadata, Search and CMS integrations, Taxonomies and ontologies

Understanding the context and meaning of words is the science of semantics. Search engines are great at indexing words but there not so great at understanding a user’s information seeking behavior. What if search could:

  • Provide suggestions
  • Display predictive type ahead
  • Apply intelligent filters to narrow search results
  • Return pages that are specifically about the desired topic

Smartlogic Semaphore provides a set of services that knowledge managers, information scientists and user experience designers need to capture the context and meaning of the language used in your organization and integrate it into any application that helps users create, manage or use that information. Let's face it, language is complex, simplify with Semaphore.
