Human language big data company LinguaSys has created a new API portal called GlobalNLP to reach what it calls "the flourishing global developer population" building Natural Language Processing (NLP) applications with their own business logic.
GlobalNLP understands and extracts meaning from unstructured or conversational text to comprehend the meaning of textual human dialog across over 20 languages.
LinguaSys works across the "more challenging" Asian and Middle Eastern languages with high-quality semantics. There are customizable language models, attribute tags, concept tagging, domain detection, full semantic network, hyponyms, hypernyms, synonyms, keyword extraction, language detection, lemmatization, morphology, parsing, part of speech tagging, relation extraction, sentiment analysis, translation, transliteration, crosslingual retrieval, anaphora resolution, and natural language interfaces.
The company provides services to developers via RESTful cloud-based API connectivity with up to 20 API calls a minute, and up to 500 API calls a month — free — to test.
"LinguaSys is also making Story Mapper available on GlobalNLP. [This] provides insights to media intelligence companies, analyzing large volumes of unstructured text in native languages, then categorizing and summarizing the data," said Brian Garr, CEO of LinguaSys.
Story Mapper searches big data, social media, news feeds, and other digital text for content, sentiment, names, quotations and relationships, extracting facts, topics, events, assessing tone, and determining prominence, relevance, and the dependence of entities in multiple original languages.
