New tools will enable machine learning of twitter feeds

La Jolla CA | Zurich | Berlin  February 16 2012 – ai-one inc. and Gnostech Inc. announced a partnership today to build new machine learning applications for the US government and military. The deal brings together two small firms that are well known for developing cutting-edge technologies. Gnostech specializes in simulation and modeling, Command Control Communications Computers and Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems and security engineering and Information Assurance (IA) applications. The partnership with ai-one provides Gnostech with access to technology that enables computers to learn the meaning and context of data in a way that is similar to humans. Called “biologically inspired intelligence” the technology is a new form of machine learning that is particularly useful for understanding complex, unstructured information – such as conversations in social media.

In the past month, the US government has issued six requests for companies to create solutions to help better understand TwitterFacebook and other social media sources. These broad area announcements (BAAs) are formal requests from the Government to invite companies to provide turn-key solutions. With more than 800 million people actively using Facebook and more than 100 million Twitter users, governments and intelligence agencies know that they need better ways to mine this data to get real-time information to protect national security.“

We now have more than 40 partners worldwide that are experimenting with our technology – but only 3 that specialize in US government applications,” said Tom Marsh, President of ai-one. “Gnostech is local, technically driven and well positioned to develop rapid prototypes using our technology.”

About Gnostech, Since 1981, Gnostech has provided technical and engineering services to the Department of Defense (DOD) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Gnostech has a proven reputation for engineering efficiency, systems innovation, and dedicated customer service.

Gnostech Inc. began as an engineering and consulting company in Warminster, PA with expertise in GPS simulations and software, initially supporting the US Navy at the Naval Air Development Center (NADC) in Warminster, PA. Today, Gnostech has grown from a few people to about 50 employees with a satellite office in San Diego, CA and engineering support staff in Norfolk, VA, Morristown, NJ and Philadelphia, PA. Gnostech’s technical expertise expands upon our GPS experience and extends into Mission Planning, Network Engineering, Information Assurance and Security Engineering.  www.gnostech.com

About ai-one inc., ai-one provides an “API for building learning machines”.  Based in San Diego, Zurich and Berlin, ai-one’s software technology is an adaptive holosemantic data space with semiotic capabilities (“biologically inspired intelligence”).  The Topic-Mapper™ SDK for text enables developers to create intelligent applications that deliver better sense-making capabilities for semantic discovery, lightweight ontologies, knowledge collaboration, sentiment analysis, artificial intelligence and data mining.  www.ai-one.com

Press Release

Brazilian Arquiware signs deal to use new machine learning SDK to enhance sentiment analysis of social media networks.

La Jolla CA | São Paulo – Marketing consumer products in Brazil is about to get a lot easier thanks to a small, innovative software company. Arquiware is combining artificial intelligence with natural language processing to enable companies to analyze feelings and opinions social media networks. They are among the first in the world to apply techniques to create tools that enable companies to understand the sentiments of customers.

“Many multi-nationals come to Brazil then realize that it takes more than understanding Portuguese to understand how a brand interacts with consumers.” said Luis Lima, President of Arquiware, “In fact, the diversity of Brazil makes it almost impossible to understand our market unless you use sophisticated tools to extract the true meaning of what people are saying about you.”

Arquiware will add ai-one’s Topic-Mapper SDK to build artificial intelligence into two existing products. SentimentWare and TopicExtractWare analyze text data from social media networks and news feeds. The new capability gives Arquiware clients the ability to understand how any given news event will impact the perception of a brand.

ai-one’s technology is used by telecom companies, security and law enforcement agencies to enable computers to read text in a similar manner to humans. “We are thrilled that Arquiware will apply our technology to social media sentiment analysis. They are ahead of the efforts I have seen in Silicon Valley,” commented Olin Hyde, VP of Business Development for ai-one.

About Arquiware DSC (Brazil), Arquiware is one of Brazil’s leading software companies specializing in application development using natural language processing (NLP) and text mining. Arquiware builds custom applications for numerous enterprise clients and sells commercial off-the-shelf products for sentiment analysis and text extraction. SentimentWare provides sentiment analysis of social networks using the Radian6 API. TopicExtractWare is a SaaS that summarizes the meaning of any corpus of text by distilling information into tag clouds.
