High-Performance Searches and Information Management

Select language  
Search from site  

If you run a search on 'hand', will the form 'hands' be also included in the returned set of matches? Do your current search facilities allow searching on sentence constructions with 'Nokia' as the subject? Would you benefit from being able to screen any common features out of a large body of text? Is the manual classification of documents causing headaches in your company? How about quickly identifying any documents similar to the one you are reading from the data flow? How does your organisation monitor faint signals? And how about monitoring the competition?

A Complete Range of Searches

For companies and private persons alike it is becoming increasingly important to come up with the right information at the right time and pass it on to the right people. Lingsoft solutions address the relevant needs from improvements on simple text searches all the way to demanding text mining. Our text products are used both on individual workstations and in text archives on a national scale. Our products are used as integrated modules by software developers, as customisable solutions by corporate and organisational customers, and by a number of language professionals.

Do Your Searches Understand Finnish?

Traditional search tools do not support inflections because words in English are hardly ever inflected. This is not the case in many other European languages where inflections are more abundant. Should you, for instance, run a search on the Finnish word for hand käsi, the relevant inflections (forms like kättä, käden) would not be returned. This is no problem at all when using Lingsoft tools.

  • Returning the base word form – the best option for languages with highly polymorphic inflections such as Finnish. Improves search accuracy also in other languages.

  • Search term generation – all forms of the word will be accommodated. Suitable for languages with a limited range of inflections.

  • Enhanced searches – increases matches by using thesauri. A search on the word käsi also returns synonyms such as kämmen and koura.

Filtering and Classifying Information by Text Mining

Text mining is based on automatic solutions allowing searches for new information in massive amounts of free-text data.

  • Document classification refers to the sorting of documents and articles by means of a specified classification system. The feature recognises, places and forwards documents to the desired person as required. This is definitely a useful characteristic in applications involving newspaper archives, customer information management and competition analysis.

  • Document clustering means the automatic sorting of documents into groups based on their similar content. Unlike classifiers, the Clusterer creates the required groups automatically. This is highly convenient in competition analysis and customer management.

  • Data extraction means the screening of any required information from a data flow. Examples include obtaining merger information from newspaper clippings, a desired competence profile from CVs or an important contact from an email inbox.

  • Search on similar documents makes it possible to retrieve semantically similar documents from a document collection, which has been indexed with the help of a similarity model. Applications include media monitoring to provide reference material on the given subjects.
