Francisco Webber: Semantic Fingerprinting: Democratising NLP
cortical.io’s Semantic Fingerprinting technology originates in a new, fundamentally different machine learning approach: it is based on a statistics-free processing model that uses similarity as a foundation for intelligence. The cortical.io Retina converts any kind of text into a numeric representation, a Semantic Fingerprint, that encodes meaning explicitly with all contained senses and contexts. The system "understands" the relatedness of two items by simply measuring their overlap. As a result, it is very fast, reliable and easy to implement - a breakthrough technology that leverages the intelligence of the brain to enable the Natural Language Processing of Big Text Data.
