Agence France-Presse to Deploy TEMIS Semantic Technology Within its New Editorial System


3/8/2012 9:37:33 AM

Paris, France – March 8th, 2012– TEMIS, leading provider of Semantic Content Enrichment solutions for the Enterprise, and Agence France-Presse (AFP), one of the three worldwide news agencies, today announced that they are greatly expanding their strategic partnership to deploy semantic enrichment on AFP’s future editorial console.

Covering the world with a combined 5,000 stories a day in English, French, Spanish, German, Portuguese and Arabic, AFP required to increase the productivity and consistency of its news annotation process. To achieve that, AFP has launched a new innovative editorial system called Iris including advanced tools for journalists. The roll-out of the Iris system will begin Q2 2012.

Embedded within AFP’s new editorial Iris workstation, TEMIS flagship Luxid® for Content Enrichment Platform will annotate the news on-the-fly. This semi-automated process will increase productivity, making news immediately available, as well as consistency of tagging, making the search more relevant.

The editorial Iris workstation will embed Luxid® recently released version 6, combined with Text Mining 360° Skill Cartridge® for entity extraction in English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese and Arabic.

“At AFP, we are always working on making our editorial processes more efficient. With Luxid® semantic content enrichment, we can now provide our journalists and clients with ever more relevant and powerful search and navigation tools”, said Jean François Wets, Director of Information Systems at AFP. “We are happy to expand our successful collaboration with TEMIS to this new project, which will now include the whole AFP content managed in Iris.”

“TEMIS is thrilled to keep working with AFP on strategic projects while deploying Luxid® latest release and leveraging our continued effort on Arabic language”, said Vincent Nibart, Director, Publishing Solutions at TEMIS.

Text Mining 360° Skill Cartridge® is an advanced multilingual text analysis solution for extracting entities such as people names, companies, organizations, locations, financial amounts, date & time, addresses, phone numbers, emails, etc..

Luxid® will also enrich AFP news authored in Arabic language. AFP and TEMIS are indeed both involved in the SAMAR project, a sponsored research project led by AFP. The project aims at building a new platform for managing Arabic language multimedia information. In this project, TEMIS provides its core Text Mining technology to analyze content in Arabic language and extract relevant entities.

Luxid® for Content Enrichment is also already embedded into ImageForum

(http://www.imageforum.afp.com/ImageForum), AFP’s e-business platform for pictures. ImageForum enables subscribers to access AFP and its partners’ photos and graphics in real time via the Internet. Every day, some 5,000 new images feed are added to ImageForum. Luxid® automates the semantic enrichment of captions to produce metadata that help ImageForum’s search engine return more relevant results and provide an enhanced navigation experience. Luxid® not only produces metadata from daily new captions but has also been processing the 14-million volume of image archives of AFP.
