1
Source analysis and metadata extraction
  • Performs automated source discovery, classification, ranking and assesses source value
  • Transforms unstructured textual content from the article into structured metadata
2
Named entity recognition
  • Extracts and disambiguates companies (IBM, Amazon, Microsoft, Oracle, Daedalus Blue), with further capability to separate foreign subsidiaries and ambiguous company names
  • Recognises the location, extracting Texas and recognising its ‘parental’ location is the USA
3
Event type recognition
  • Detects Lawsuit and Patent Infringement as two of the event types in the article
  • Determines that Daedalus Blue sues Microsoft and not vice versa
  • Understands that the other companies are not suing or being sued
  • Concludes that this particular Lawsuit case is current and did not occur in the past
4
Scenario calculation and generation
  • Quantifies parameters of the signal, such as scope and intensity
  • Detects the sentiment relating to each company and the overall article sentiment
  • Clusters articles and combines them into the scenario across all 12 languages
  • Decides whether to generate the scenario for a client, using ≈ 50 semantic and statistical parameters

Example of differences between languages

In Italian the meaning of “discontinuity” (discontinuità) in the institutional context is closer to change than to interruption, Japanese use the same word “警告” for warning and alarming, the French “parfait/parfaite” additionally to perfect can have the meaning of finished or adult and French word “issue” rather means outcome, than a problem.
