MultiLing 2015: ExB takes high rank in an international Automated Text Summarization competition

ExB’s technology is second only to entries from academic scientists

Computational linguists and engineers of the Munich-based ExB Group have once again demonstrated the power of their intelligent solutions for Cognitive Computing at the prestigious MultiLing competition for Automated Text Summarization.

ExB took part in two of the competitions organized at MultiLing 2015: Multilingual Single Document Summarization (MSS) and Multilingual Multi-Document Summarization (MMS). ExB was the only commercial participant in in the MSS competition, which ranks machine-written summaries of single texts in 38 languages. ExB’s technology scored second against entries from academic institutions in this competition. In the MMS competition, which judges summaries of multiple documents in ten languages, ExB was the only participant to produce summaries in all ten languages. In both competitions, ExB’s entry proved very competitive even against participants that only summarized documents in a few languages, demonstrating the superiority of its cross-language technology.

Veni, vidi, vici – what automated text summarization must do is just what that famous expression does:

Understand the content of a text and reproduce it in as compact a form as feasible. Computational linguists and computer scientists have been working for years to create automated text summarization technologies that could revolutionize scientific work, publishing, and the media and communications industry.

For Dr. Ramin Assadollahi, founder and CEO of ExB, the company’s outstanding performance in this competition confirms that “ExB’s focus on research and development makes it an incubator for scientific advances as well as technological innovations that scale to meet diverse market demands. The objective of our team is to break new ground and to overcome barriers. This requires space and resources – that is what we offer at ExB.”
