Hot Neuron Introduces Document Clustering Software

Hot Neuron, LLC ( announced the release of version 1.0 of its Clustify document clustering software (, aimed at helping corporations and law firms explore, organize, and tag large document sets. Clustify uses a proprietary, agglomerative algorithm designed to provide excellent cluster quality and scalability. Clustify can help corporations organize their internal documents. It can also enhance search engines by identifying related documents that may be of interest even if they don’t match the search query exactly.

Clustify groups documents into clusters of related documents. It identifies important keywords for each cluster, giving quick insight into the document set. It also allows the user to create a hierarchy of custom tags that can be applied to individual documents, all documents in a particular cluster, or all clusters containing a particular combination of keywords, allowing the user to categorize hundreds of documents with a single mouse click.

Clustify provides substantial benefits in litigation, where electronic discovery can be expensive and time-consuming. It produces a quick overview of the document set, allowing the user to prioritize the documents for review. By processing the most promising documents first, litigators can start planning their cases early and ensure they meet deadlines for document requests. Reviewing related documents together allows documents to be tagged more efficiently and more consistently, with a greater understanding of relationships and context. Clustify can reveal evidence that may be missed with search queries, e.g., due to synonyms.

Hot Neuron is an information retrieval software and services company located in Bryn Mawr, Pa. It also owns and operates (, a search engine and directory for finding online magazine articles.
