Nstein Launches News NServer

Nstein Technologies, Inc., a provider of software business solutions to the e-publishing industry, has announced the launch of News Nserver, its new "total solution" automated-indexing product that's targeted to news publishers. News Nserver aims to enable significant productivity gains for news agencies that currently tag their critical information manually. This automated-indexing solution automatically categorizes documents according to the industry-standard taxonomy from the International Press Telecommunications Council (IPTC; http://www.iptc.org). The new software is tailored specifically to newspapers, news wires, and news e-publishers. According to the announcement, it is designed to allow those organizations to produce and distribute information faster, in greater volumes, and with very high precision and reliability.

News Nserver intelligently tags and exposes the most relevant concepts in a document without the use of pre-defined dictionaries, and it can automatically categorize documents according to the IPTC subject taxonomy. The product also finds and extracts proper names—people, geographic locations, and companies—based on linguistic and semantic algorithms, thus eliminating the need for pre-defined dictionaries.

Currently News Nserver runs in English, French, and Spanish. By the end of the year it will be available in additional languages, including Portuguese, Russian, Polish, Czech, Korean, Japanese, Chinese, and Turkish. Nstein's News Nserver is the first in a series of automated indexing solutions to be launched by the company that will enhance the use of well-recognized, industry-standard taxonomies such as IPTC's. The technology can be utilized by any subject list or complex hierarchy.
