Text Analytics to Analyze Big Data
Governments integrate our linguistic software components into existing applications or use our robust and high-throughput SDKs to build new applications. Our tools enable classification, management, and analysis of very big data sets of unstructured, multilingual text.
The output of our comprehensive Rosette suite—tagged and analyzed data in 40 languages—feeds into information retrieval, visualization, link analysis, and pattern and trend analysis applications. Rosette empowers these applications to return precise and comprehensive results.
Name Matching and Translation for Identity Resolution
With names extracted from data by Rosette Entity Extractor, Rosette’s name components will translate or correct names to standardized spellings, eliminating the problems of inconsistent and “messy” real-world data. Once names are matched across documents and combined with biometric data and biographical information, identity resolution becomes a reality.
