Monthly News - The Month July for AX Semantics

A robot wins a journalistic award!, AX on the Road
Research Contributions, Beta testing for NEXT and more languages

A robot wins a journalistic award!

2 years ago, the Guardian wondered if a robot could win a Pullitzer - Now, this seems to have happened: The Stuttgarter Zeitung received the journalistic award of the Konrad-Adenauer-Foundation for their data journalism project “pollution radar” (“Feinstaubradar”). This project gives citizens hyperlocalized insights into their air quality in their direct neighborhood, and uses automatically generated news stories. Congratulations to our customer!

AI is already making inroads into journalism but could it win a Publitzer?

AX on the Road

AX Semantics is on tour a lot this summer. Starting with the in Vienna, where we managed to expand our investor and enterprise customer network, our roadshow did lead us to the Webit Festival in Sofia and to the Plug & Play Fintech days.

Research Contributions 

As part of our general research undertakings, we have participated in the Surfaze Realization Shared Task 2018, combining a task-specific neuronal net to define sentence order with our existing morphology component to solve the task. The presentations of the various approaches are held at the 56th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics in Melbourne.

Beta testing for NEXT has started

Our new software iteration “NEXT” (v3) has received its first testing rounds, and a selected group of users have started beta testing to provide feedback on our new concepts and UI.

If you want to join the next round of Beta users, please apply at early access program participant application

For launching the next generation of our editor, we are looking for participants to evaluate and test real life use cases.
While we have a lot of internal testing, we can not anticipate every use case of a broad audience.
To create a better product for you, we need your help.

and we will you inform how to get started.

Expanding into more than 90 Languages

We are currently expanding our underlying language technology layer into a multi-algorithm architecture, which will make us able to cover even more languages. If you are interested in other languages than our current 27+ - even if a very exotic language: drop us a note, we might be able to cover you!See you next Month with fresh AX-News.
