The technology

Eptica Lingway's cognitive and semantic technology is the product of dozens man-years of R&D.

It is ever improving, thanks to the work of our linguists who specialise in NLP. They develop the components for the semantic analysis and for the research into HR databases.

The core of our technology relies on a modulated and multilingual semantic dictionary and on grammars for the text analysis. It also includes components for documents management, allowing conversion from virtually any format and to index them.

The key of our technology is the implementation of our linguistic and semantic knowledges into a semantic search engine. This enables us to deliver interesting results.

Our search engine is able to make use of the knowledge bases and monolingual or multilingual dictionaries, i.e. it does more than simple keywords search. It allows you to expand your request using the words inflection, morphological derivation and synonymy or various degree of words similarity. The search engine also uses heuristics, which are optimised for dealing with compounds words. Finally, specific search strategies allow you to receive relevant results when sending a request made of many full words.

In addition the search engine also offers the possibility to make faceted researches, relying on the documents metadata in order to provide the user with unthought-of solutions to improve research.

Last but not least, an advanced search with more fields of research allows expert users to specify more precise queries, thanks to a combination of Boolean operators and semantic or word for word requests, on various fields of the database.
