Lucidworks announces advanced linguistics package
Lucidworks, a provider of AI-powered search solutions, has announced the Advanced Linguistics Package for Lucidworks Fusion to power personalized search for users in Asian, European, and Middle Eastern markets. Lucidworks now embeds text analytics from Basis Technology, the leading provider of AI for natural language processing.
According to the companies, building, testing, and maintaining the many algorithms and models required to properly support each language is challenging and expensive. Asian, Middle Eastern, and certain European languages require additional processes to handle unique linguistic phenomena, such as lack of whitespace, compound words, and multiple forms of the same word.
The combination of Basis with the AI-powered search platform of Lucidworks Fusion is expected to provide accuracy and performance enhancements in information retrieval for the digital experience.
“When it comes to applying AI for understanding multiple languages, Basis Technology is superior,” said Radu Miclaus, director of product, AI, and cloud at Lucidworks. "Basis Technology has worked with the world’s largest companies to make their global search work brilliantly for over 20 years. Rosette, their text analytics product, is deployed in many of the largest government and business applications."
Lucidworks' Advanced Linguistics Package provides language processing in more than 30 languages and advanced entity extraction in 21 languages. By accurately analyzing the text, in the language it was written, Rosette helps the Lucidworks Fusion platform deliver the right answers to every user, regardless of where they work or what language they use.
“This is a story of two complementary technologies growing even closer together. Search and natural language processing are essential ingredients for making raw data useful,” explained Steve Cohen, COO, Basis Technology. “Whether you are building a more personalized user experience, a smarter product recommendation, or simply trying to answer a question, having AI-driven search with tested, proven NLP will improve efficiency and allow you to get the most possible value from your data.”
