WALLINGFORD, England and PARIS, January 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- TEMIS, the leading provider of Semantic Content Enrichment solutions today announced it has signed a strategic agreement with CABI, an inter-governmental, not-for-profit organization providing information and applying scientific expertise to solve problems in agriculture and the environment.
CABI has scientific research, international development, knowledge management and publishing at its core. By generating and increasing access to scientific knowledge, and delivering change through development projects, CABI works to improve crop yields, combat agricultural pests and microbial diseases, protect biodiversity and safeguard the environment, which enables the world's poorest communities to feed themselves.
Two key trends that CABI faces as a major publisher of scientific information are the exponential growth rate of the volume of published articles on one hand, and on the other the emergence of the "Web of Data", which is shaping a demand for more structured data products in addition to traditional information products based on content.
To address these trends, CABI has decided to optimize its content indexing which was previously primarily manual, by integrating TEMIS's Luxid® Content Enrichment Platform in its content management workflow. CABI's first objective is to make efficiency gains through automation and reduce indexing costs associated with the increase of content volumes while ensuring high levels of metadata quality. The rich semantic metadata extracted from its content will enable more sophisticated search, navigation and discovery tools on CABI's online portals, promoting greater user engagement. Luxid®'s semantic enrichment pipeline will furthermore enable the extraction from text of structured information as well as semantic relationships, enabling CABI to create linked data products connected to the larger Web of Data.
TEMIS helps organizations structure, manage and exploit their unstructured information assets. Its flagship platform, Luxid®, identifies and extracts targeted information to semantically enrich content with domain-specific metadata. This enables professional publishers to efficiently package and deliver relevant information to their audience, and helps organizations to intelligently archive, manage, package, deliver, access and analyze increasing volumes of information.
