Provalis Research Unveils WordStat for Stata to Offer Numerical and Text Analysis Combined


Montréal, Québec (PRWEB) April 13, 2015

Provalis Research announced today the integration of WordStat, the leading text analysis software, with Stata, the popular data analysis and statistical software. This new collaboration couples the cutting-edge numerical analysis of Stata with the unique text analytics functionality of Provalis Research. The combined technologies will enable business analysts and researchers to perform thorough statistical analysis and process unstructured data in a much faster and more accurate manner.

The business and academic communities have long needed statistical tools which enable both analysis of structured and

unstructured data, but the combination has so far been uncommon. Many disciplines performing mixed methods research, such as economics, sociology, psychology and political science, have been facing the same challenge. There is a need to analyze text data to identify topics while simultaneously determining similarities and relations to other data components. Some typical text mining tasks include text categorization, comparative analysis, topic modeling, entity relation analysis, and automatic document classification. In many ways, text mining addresses this challenge by enabling sophisticated indexing that “turns text into numbers”, which can then be incorporated into other analyses.

In order to better serve their clients, Provalis Research and Stata have collaborated to build an integrated solution that leverages both Stata’s statistical power and WordStat’s text analysis tools. With Provalis Research’s technology, Stata’s clients are now able to import documents from various file formats and automatically extract numerical, categorical or date variables from structured documents for effective text analytics. “It means that someone can import news transcripts, reports, and extract not only the text, but also dates, numbers, etc.,” explains Normand Péladeau, Provalis Research’s CEO. Once documents are processed, WordStat’s exploratory text analysis function provides researchers with powerful analytics to extract themes and automatically identify patterns, including topic modeling which allows users to get a quick overview of the most salient topics from large text collections.

“WordStat for Stata is an amazing tool for Stata users who do mixed methods research. WordStat’s extensive collection of text-mining features and user-friendly interface are an ideal complement to Stata’s powerful analytical capabilities. The ability to perform text analysis on Stata datasets makes it easier than ever!” says Chuck Huber, PhD Senior Statistician at StataCorp. The integrated solution even enables Stata’s clients to create custom dictionaries composed of words, word patterns, phrases and proximity rules, in addition to developing automatic document classification models. With a capacity of up to 20 million words processed per minute, WordStat for Stata not only allows businesses and academics to handle large amounts of unstructured information in a faster manner, but it also enables them to identify temporal trends, assess relationships with quantitative data more easily, and ultimately make better-informed decisions.

To learn more about the new integration, go to the WordStat for Stata page or order it at Provalis Research’s ecommerce store.

Genetec Announces New Cloud-Based Automatic License Plate Recognition Solution


MONTREAL (PRWEB) April 02, 2015

Genetec™, a manufacturer of unified IP security solutions, today announced AutoVu Plate Reader Cloud, a new software-based license plate recognition solution for its AutoVu Automatic License Plate Recognition (ALPR) system. This new module will allow customers to enhance standard IP video surveillance cameras with ALPR capabilities instead of requiring a specialized license plate recognition unit. AutoVu Plate Reader Cloud is expected to be available in the United States early summer 2015, with other regions to follow.

AutoVu Plate Reader Cloud will offer an accessible solution that provides the same high accuracy delivered by AutoVu specialized units in situations where vehicles are moving at speeds of up to 15 MPH (25 km/h), such as parking lot monitoring, automatic gate or garage door operations and data mining, to name a few.

The AutoVu Plate Reader Cloud ALPR engine will be hosted in the cloud, making it easy to deploy and maintain. Engine updates containing the latest improvements and support for new license plate models will be automatically applied without requiring customer intervention or system downtime. AutoVu Plate Reader Cloud connects to cameras managed by Genetec Security Center, the company’s flagship unified video surveillance, access control and ALPR platform.

Using either software triggers, such as motion or cross-line detection, or hardware triggers, including in-ground loop and IR sensors, AutoVu Plate Reader Cloud will detect vehicles and upload a short encrypted video feed to its cloud-based engine, where the image analysis is performed. The data will be sent back to the local Genetec Security Center system, usually in less than one second, to be compared to vehicle lists and used to document arrival/ departure credentials, open gates, or trigger alerts.

With AutoVu Plate Reader Cloud, customers can benefit from the extensive set of ALPR features in AutoVu, and its full unification with Security Center. Building on the company’s long experience with ALPR, Genetec AutoVu Plate Reader Cloud customers can leverage a flexible list management system, intuitive user interface and advanced reporting engine for a complete ALPR experience.

To ensure customers get a high level of accuracy and choice, AutoVu Plate Reader Cloud will work with cameras tested by Genetec in-house experts. At launch, customers will be able to select cameras from three initial manufacturers who have completed certification, including: Axis Communications, Panasonic and Sony. More camera manufacturers are currently undergoing certification.

“The Genetec AutoVu product line has always offered superior accuracy and advanced features. AutoVu Plate Reader Cloud will allow us to leverage our years of ALPR experience and leadership and offer customers an easy-to-deploy, accessible ALPR solution for applications where vehicle speed is controlled, such as parking or gate access, without sacrificing the industry-respected AutoVu quality and precision,” said Stephan Kaiser, General Manager, AutoVu. “We’re excited to offer these extended options to existing-and-new customers in addition to our line of specialized Genetec AutoVu Sharp and AutoVu SharpX ALPR units, designed to provide superior camera accuracy in any type of weather condition or speed of moving traffic,” added Kaiser.

Ontotext Achieves 62 Percent Year-Over-Year Revenue Growth in the USA as Demand for Semantic Solutions Rises


Sofia, Bulgaria and Northern Virginia (PRWEB) March 24, 2015

Ontotext USA, Inc., a leading provider of semantic technology solutions that drive business value, today announced that the company attained 62 percent year-over-year revenue growth in the USA in 2014 and predicts 100 percent growth for 2015. The company is experiencing significant customer growth across the life sciences, healthcare, media and publishing, government and educational markets.

“Ontotext doubled down in the US in 2014 and continues to expand the operation in 2015,” said Tony Agresta, Managing Director of Ontotext USA. “We added resources in sales, marketing, alliances and solutions architecture over the past year. Our lead volumes and pipelines have increased dramatically. It is clear that the North American market is becoming reacquainted with our proven semantic technology.”

Driving Ontotext USA’s market growth are a set of products that represent a complete portfolio including GraphDB™, semantic annotation pipelines and a set of integration APIs for concept extraction. GraphDB™ is a mature NoSQL engine – a triplestore compliant with Web Ontology Language (OWL), RDF(S) and SPARQL standards. Built on Java and an industry leading Sesame open-source API, it achieved enterprise resilience years ago and continues to be used as the underlying graph database engine across industries.

Ontotext offers a distinctive portfolio of semantic technology including GraphDB™ directly integrated with text mining applications. This provides customers with the ability to identify, extract and classify entities referenced inside free flowing text and automatically store the resulting rich metadata in GraphDB™. The advantages of this approach are profound:


    All of the unstructured content is discoverable
    Search and discovery applications reveal precisely what users are looking for in context
    Web applications that provide intelligence, analysis or dynamic publishing exceed visitor expectations by delivering semantically relevant, enriched and personalized results.
    Graph databases are a perfect storage facility for meta-data spawned from disparate databases and text mining.

“There’s been a positive shift in the market. The growth in unstructured data and advances in semantic technology have translated into more rapid adoption,” added Agresta. “Today, leading companies have recognized that massive amounts of structured and unstructured data can be semantically indexed inside graph databases for improved search and discovery. Not only are integration and maintenance costs lower because of the nature of RDF triplestores, but search applications pinpoint precise, context-based content. Today, users expect that when they search large corpuses of unstructured data, the results are richer and more precise, as compared to today’s mainstream search engines. We accomplish this because relevance is judged not only on the basis of plain string frequencies, but also taking into account relationships between concepts and entities in the triplestore. In years past, this was challenging but through tight integration between text mining pipelines and GraphDB™, this is a reality today. More importantly, this operates at enterprise scale with high volumes of simultaneous reads and writes and complete enterprise failover support. New facts can populate GraphDB™ at the same time users and website visitors query the database at scale.”
