Michele Alessandrini: “Atex built the Atex AI Platform to allow their customers to access all the benefits of artificial intelligence in an easy, controlled and integrated way.”

Atex has announced the addition of a new ‘Text Analytics and Smart Tagging’ module to their AI-powered publishing platform. Atex says this new feature specifically uses multilingual natural language processing (NLP) to process text in any language, and extract key concepts, entities and domains, to then recommend accurate taxonomic labels, so editors can improve content discoverability, and increase publisher revenues.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is revolutionizing the way we live, work, and interact. This is why Atex says it decided to create the Atex AI Platform, a technological and innovative laboratory within Atex, dedicated to the development of use cases that exploit the different potentialities of Artificial Intelligence in the newsrooms. Among these use cases, smart tagging allows publishing archives to be categorised automatically, saving time and resources.

To help accomplish this, Atex looked to their longtime partner Babelscape, who is an AI research company recognized for commercializing their innovative multilingual deep learning technologies to meet the growing needs of global Fortune 500 businesses.

Professor Roberto Navigli, researcher, innovator, and Babelscape co-founder, leads a team of developers that include multiple PhD industrial engineers, to build cutting-edge, state-of-the-art, multilingual semantic software. Their products improve natural language processing and understanding by leveraging the latest research and techniques (including machine and deep learning, symbolic AI and neural networks).

Professor Roberto Navigli, chief researcher and co-founder of Babelscape: “We’re proud to be working with Atex to leverage our AI-powered multilingual text analytics capabilities, to bring new powerful features to their platform users. These new tools not only add efficiency and cost savings to their editors work flows, but also increase the audiences for the content published on their CMS, by making it more discoverable through ‘smart tagging’.”

Michele Alessandrini, chief technology officer of Atex: “Atex built the Atex AI Platform to allow their customers to access all the benefits of artificial intelligence in an easy, controlled and integrated way. The partnership with Babelscape allows us to plug their experience into the workflows of our customers by creating a feedback loop between the algorithms and the data. The result is to be able to offer a service not just able to interpret a language but to do so within the context of our publishers’ domains.”
