VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 17, 2014) - WordLogic (OTCQB:WLGC), the predictive intelligence technology company that creates patented solutions for mobiles, tablets and wearables, has partnered with the Austrian Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence (OFAI) to collaborate on natural language processing and prediction research and development which will be coordinated by WordLogic's CTO, Mark Dostie.
Since its inception in 1984, OFAI has conducted research in modelling and processing human language. This includes research and development of methods and tools for text processing, question answering, computational linguistics and conversational systems. A key area the combined team will be focusing on is developing algorithmic methods that are capable of capturing and reproducing all major idiosyncrasies displayed by a language variety; be they syntactic, lexical or phonetic in nature. By using active learning techniques, this strategy allows for reduced manual effort by automatically choosing for annotation, by a human, those sentences that will result in the largest increase in quality and accuracy of the predicting system.
With OFAI's expertise in the subject areas of Natural Language Processing and Artificial Intelligence including Machine Learning, OFAI will contribute resources and research to further enhance the development of WordLogic's data structures and algorithms while WordLogic provides the operational technologies that can predict these complex linguistic structures in real time.
"With the development of Gen4, WordLogic's new NLP enhanced prediction engine, we are moving to a new level of prediction. Prediction based not only on known linguistic word patterns but also enhanced with meta-patterns of the types of words and how they are organized. The staff and existing research at OFAI are uniquely qualified to understand what we have achieved and to help us reach entirely new levels in computational linguistics, natural language processing and language prediction," states Mark Dostie, CTO of WordLogic.
