Denver, CO (PRWEB) February 26, 2008
Yves Schabes, Cofounder, Principal and President of Teragram, recently participated in an exclusive interview with Ron Powell and the Business Intelligence Network (http://www.BeyeNETWORK.com). In this interview, Schabes provides an overview of Teragram and explains how they provide companies with text analytics solutions and language technologies including automatic categorization, taxonomy management, and entities and events extraction.
"Business intelligence has evolved from a field of computing on numbers to actually computing on text, and that is where natural language processing and linguistics comes in," says Dr. Yves Schabes, President of Teragram Corporation. "Text is a reflection of language, and you need computational linguistics technologies to be able to turn language into a structure of information. That is really what the core mission of our company is to provide technologies that allow us to treat text at a more elaborate level than just characters, and to add structure on top of documents and language."
"Teragram Linguistic Technologies helps companies harness the unstructured data in their organizations, focusing on multilingual natural language processing technologies," says Ron Powell, Cofounder and Editorial Director of the Business Intelligence Network. "Computational linguistics technologies are required to turn language into structured information that can be queried and analyzed, helping companies perform more efficient searches and organize information so they can make better decisions."
