Recommind Does Smart Mining
MindServer 2.1 knowledge management software categorizes unstructured data in many types of documents.Recommind Inc. will announce Friday version 2.1 of its search and knowledge management tool, MindServer. The software is used for information categorization and retrieval. MindServer categorizes unstructured data contained in documents such as presentations, e-mails, Web pages, news feeds and contracts by automatically identifying concepts that describe a document, regardless of the language or subject, Recommind officials in Berkeley, Calif. said. In this version, Recommind is adding a new feature called text extraction, which can identify specific entities buried within text such as personal names, organizations, places, dates, and phone numbers. The software can then analyze relationships between those entities. MindServer 2.1 also includes categorization tools that enable automated or interactive classification and taxonomy management, and new administrator tools for setting up and tuning searches.
The Research Libraries Group Inc. is using MindServer 2.1 to help its customers find information from the more than 110 million records in the organizations database, mostly research data from universities and large libraries.
