Semio Adds New XML Capabilities

Semio Corp. (, a provider of content categorization solutions for business portals, has announced that it has enhanced its core engine, Semio Tagger, to automatically generate XML metadata. With this capability, Semio's core technology can be quickly and easily applied in a variety of new ways, such as tracking trends and patterns for targeted advertising, summarizing content for wireless delivery, or developing communities of interest.

Semio Tagger provides high-performance, highly scalable processing for large amounts of online content from disparate data sources. It organizes this content in topic hierarchies based on relevant phrases that are automatically identified by Semio Tagger. This gives companies the ability to fine-tune categorization rules for unique business needs or individual user requirements.

"Working with online publishers like IDG, it became clear that there were many applications for Semio's core technology that go beyond simple navigation and browsing," said Jim Nisbet, Semio's vice president for research and development. "It was also clear that XML was the right vehicle to deliver structured content to these applications and to open our technology for broader use."

Semio Tagger can be used in conjunction with Semio's viewer applications, Semio Taxonomy and Semio Map, or it can be embedded in a business portal or a customized application. The product supports a wide range of content sources, including most commercial file formats, PDF, HTML/XML sources, Lotus Notes databases, Documentum document vaults, and unstructured text in relational databases. It supports English-, French-, Spanish-, and Italian-language sources, with more languages available shortly.
