|Semio Corp., a provider of content-categorization solutions, has announced
the availability of industry templates for its content-categorization product
line. According to the company, these templates offer packaged, industry-specific
terminology and categorization, making it faster and easier to categorize
specialized content. Templates are available for the chemical, medical,
legal, military, and computing industries using industry-standard classifications
and thesauri. Semio plans to release templates for other industries in
the near future, based on customer demand.
"Instant access to the right information in the right context is vital
in fast-changing industries. But cataloging information appropriately for
industries that use complex terminology, like legal or medicine, often
requires subject-specific expertise," said Roger Ferguson, Semio's CEO.
"Our industry templates package the industry-specific expertise we have
acquired with our customers, as well as accepted thesauri in various industries,
so that businesses can quickly implement custom categorization solutions."
Semio Tagger analyzes and organizes vast amounts of content from disparate
sources so that users can access the right information in the right context.
According to the company, the technology can be integrated easily into
Web applications and portals, and is rapidly becoming the categorization
solution of choice for large or specialized business portals. Semio's industry
templates provide predefined, industry-specific terminology and classification,
enabling a rapid implementation of the Semio solution.
Semio Tagger can be embedded directly in a Web portal or used in conjunction
with Semio's viewers: Semio Map and Semio Taxonomy. Semio's customers include
AT&T, Cisco, DuPont, Stanford HighWire Press, IDG, Procter & Gamble,
and the U.S. Postal Service. Semio has partnerships with major portal vendors,
