By on

A recent press release reports, “, a leader in AI-based Natural Language Understanding (NLU) solutions, today announced a strategic relationship with Xilinx, Inc. to deliver next generation machine learning solutions to unlock the value of enterprise data. will unveil its NLU technology running on Xilinx Alveo accelerator cards demonstrating orders-of-magnitude performance increases over standard computing platforms during the Xilinx Developer Conference in San Jose, Oct.1-2. Francisco Webber, CEO and co-founder, also announced that has received a strategic investment from Xilinx and will use the additional capital to expand its ability to deliver innovative NLU-based applications to enterprise customers. Terms of the investment were not disclosed.”

The release goes on, “The unique approach to NLU is inspired by the latest findings on the way the brain processes information. This approach provides advantages over traditional machine learning approaches and helps businesses solve many open NLU challenges like meaning-based filtering of terabytes of unstructured text data, real-time topic detection in social media, or semantic search over millions of documents across languages. Webber will also deliver a talk at XDF on ‘Semantic Supercomputing’ – to discuss how the combination of hardware and software enables a new class of high performance NLU applications for the future.”
