-- The Austrian company max.recall has developed a comprehensive technology to search for quantities and ranges in technical documents: quantalyze is a Web-based service that helps information professionals increase the speed and precision of context-aware quantity searches.
This new service uses cutting-edge semantic annotation techniques to identify, normalize and give meaning to numeric values and units in text, while taking their context into account. Once the documents have been processed, they can be searched via the quantalyze workbench which combines quantity search with powerful full-text search and filtering features based on the open source Lucene software and UIMA standards.
Searching for quantities in text implies that some major technical barriers are overcome: different representations of the same quantity, overlapping intervals, different unit systems and languages, different meanings of the value depending on the context. Quantalyze solves these challenges through an advanced standardization and annotation process.
The service is accessible online and can be customized for any particular industry domain or information context, from financial reports to technical documentation, chemical patents or medical literature. More information: http://www.quantalyze.com
