TCA turned to Smartlogic’s Semaphore, an enterprise semantic platform, to built new a categorization system for TCA that now accurately defines the topics of stories, and is regularly updated.
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.

Semaphore is a rich tool set that improves the SharePoint experience by managing an organization's business vocabulary (ontology), automating the process of metadata creation and addition and tagging the content with accurate and granular metadata.
Health and Human Services' Head Start manages its taxonomy in Ontology Manager and uses Classification Server to perform text analytics on content. The result? Improved access to information by representatives, clients, and grantees through better search and knowledge management.
Smartlogic understands the value of complete and consistent metadata and how it enhances the SharePoint experience. The synergy between SharePoint and Semaphore – Smartlogic’s Content Intelligence platform - with its enhanced taxonomy and ontology management, easy to use Web Parts, accurate classification and metadata will minimize SharePoint complexity and increase your ability to find answers, discover trends and make data driven business decisions.
A taxonomy is a way of describing a particular knowledge base in a simple hierarchical form. This hierarchy (classification system) provides a consistent language to describe concepts within a domain and the relationships between them.
Smartlogic's Classification Server derives high quality information from text that organizations use to make better business decisions, drive business processes, innovate, automate and meet regulatory requirements. Classification Server's approach to classifying content combines precise rulebases and natural language processing to give users the best of both worlds – accurate classification results with the ease of automation – reducing the costs, time and pain of content classification drastically.
Semaphore, Smartlogic's Content Intelligence platform, helps you make the most of Apache Lucene/Solr so that you find the information you need, when you need it. Solr's powerful full-text and faceted search, dynamic clustering, database integration, rich document handling and high scalability becomes an increasingly powerful tool when combined with Semaphore. Semaphore adds a metadata layer to the Solr Index to enhance search results and Solr uses the metadata in conjunction with text searches to return highly relevant documents – and influences ranking to help the most relevant results appear to the user first.
With Ontology Manager, organizations can create taxonomies, ontologies or other types of classification models that represent the concepts, topics, products, market segments and organizational structures that are important to your organizations' needs and structure. Ontology Manager is one of the core components of Semaphore, Smartlogic's Content Intelligence platform, incorporating it into your organization will harness the value in your unstructured content to result in data-driven business decisions.
A leading life sciences company researches, develops and produces drugs, they need to manage their pipeline to maximize the development process. A large store of valuable knowledge is locked up in the documentation of other projects, lab notes, other clinical trials, earlier models and previous experiments. The information is housed in different silos and has multiple formats. The volume and variety of the data make manual processing unfeasible. Smartlogic Semaphore, the Content Intelligence platform empowers pharma companies to model, classify and manage their unstructured content to drive down costs and increase efficiency in drug development.
Semaphore Semantic Enhancement Server (SES) results in an exceptional user search experiences.

Additionally, Advanced Language Packs bring an improved level of language processing for operations such as term stemming and tokenizing that can be used to improve the accuracy of rule-based classification logic.
Content Intelligence is the combination of semantic technology and information science that allows machines to model, interpret, describe, analyze and visualize the content of the enterprise in order to leverage the human intelligence locked in that content.
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.
The Ontology Review Tool is a component of the Semaphore toolset which, provides a feedback loop for subject matter experts and system users to help them identify, define and revise the enterprise vocabulary.
