Expert System and Vejo Park Collaborate for Italy's Ministry of Foreign Affairs

The integrated platform speeds up search operations and optimizes information for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Crisis Unit

MODENA, ITALY--(Marketwire - Feb. 23, 2011) - Expert System, the leading provider of semantic software that searches, discovers, classifies and interprets text information, and Vejo Park, the enterprise incubator for technology, new media and digital content, today announce a collaboration with the Crisis Unit for Italy's Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the development of a software platform for the identification and real-time selection of important information from the Web. The solution, which is already in use, is the result of collaboration between Vejo Park's G3Docs software and Expert System's COGITO® semantic software.

G3Docs takes advantage of a specially configured crawler that, thanks to a distributed architecture, creates a specialized search engine that monitors specific web sites. The system gives visibility to information for predetermined topics or subjects within pre-established parameters. G3Docs is an application of distributed calculation that has the advantage of being able to batch process large volumes of data.

Cogito extends semantic search capabilities to all formats of information, and goes beyond the limits of traditional search engines that limit themselves to keyword based technology, which is unable to understand the meanings of words and phrases. 

"The Ministry's selection confirms the strategic potential of semantic technology," said Maurizio Mencarini, Sales Director, Intelligence Division of Expert System. "The ability to understand the meanings of words is fundamental for organizations like the Crisis Unit when monitoring and analyzing large volumes of data. Cogito makes it possible for the Ministry to filter out background noise and quickly identify the most important, relevant data useful for assistance activities."
