Pragmatech listed in Gilbane Report.

Summary: Pragmatech: the sole MENA representative in the Gilbane Report on Semantic Technology.

Although a very recent player in semantic technology (with just little over a year), Pragmatech's recently released beta version of its semantic engine, ctrl, was the only technology coming out of the Middle East that was listed in the reputable Multi-Client Study of the Gilbane Group.

The report, entitled "Semantic Technologies: Landscape of High Value Applications for the Enterprise", cited in addition to Pragmatech's semantic engine some of the largest software companies and leading research labs in the world.

Pragmatech's management said that they were not surprised to be mentioned in this international report knowing the technological edge ctrl is introducing to the semantic industry.

Ctrl, the first R&D product of Pragmatech, is currently open for a selected few worldwide to test its capabilities online.

The main functionality of ctrl's API is to identify the set of (disambiguated) key topics in a document, generate a lucid summary, and retrieve documents that are related by topic/subject matter as opposed to keywords.

Pragmatech claims that using ctrl they are increasing the depth of semantic analysis that is possible on the document level.

This added value was achieved by moving from words to concepts, then from simple concepts to topics (which are not phrases, but complex 'disambiguated' concepts), and, subsequently, to key topics that represent what a certain document is about.

Considered to be the pre-requisite of employing the long awaited Semantic Web , semantic technology is one of the hottest and most sought-after technologies today (being actively pursued by the likes of Google, Microsoft, SAP, Oracle, etc.

), not to mention media giants and government institutions.
