ESTIMATED READING TIME: 4 MINUTES
It’s not often we get to write about cool new technology. That’s not really our wheel house.
But this blog is different, because we’ve discovered a piece of software we think could significantly change how businesses function….and also, we just think it’s pretty cool.
Software company Expert System, based in Italy, have recently expanded into the Australian market after existing in Europe and north America for some time.
They’re specialists in artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and natural language processing, which we all know can do some cool things and is a real tech growth area. But Expert System have utilised cognitive AI with a proprietary built-in knowledge graph (JARGON FREE INTERPRETATION – for those not yet fluent in AI speak – Cogito comes with a map of language rules and relationships).
Together, these features avoid the pitfalls of pure machine learning and become a much more powerful tool for “reading” unstructured information.
Cogito Discover, by Expert System, is a text reading platform that takes AI to a whole new level of usefulness for standard business purposes.
Cogito Discover has an incredible amount of advanced AI technology that can process large amounts of unstructured, language-based information very efficiently, in multiple languages, and including documents, email, transcripts, pdfs, web-based data such as social media or news sites.
The secret that allows Cogito Discover to out-perform other forms of AI is the pre-determined, domain independent representation of knowledge (or language lexicons) through concepts and their related meanings and the different relationships that exist among concepts.
(JARGON FREE VERSION: Cogito comes with a comprehensive understanding of language rules, relationships and usage. Because this language knowledge is built in, Cogito hits the ground running, miles ahead of other machine-learning-based text reading tools, that can’t work without input first.)
This language knowledge, or “semantic engine,” can then be enhanced with user-defined taxonomy and relationship data (JARGON FREE: the specific language usage and relationships between language related to your business area).
And this allows a much more specific and exact text identification and classification functionality (JARGON FREE: Cogito Discover knocks it out of the park with accuracy when reading unstructured text).
This taxonomy and relationship approach replaces the manual tagging and re-tagging that is required for conventional machine learning to operate and stay up-to-date (JARGON FREE: Users have to keep training standard machine learning readers, but not with Cogito Discover). Cogito Discover works right out of the box, because of this embedded knowledge, removing the time-consuming processes that has made existing machine learning tools impractical to use.
Because the taxonomy and relationships are predefined, Cogito Discover can handle complex scenarios and can successfully identify and categorise unstructured data that was previously beyond the scope of regular text reading software.
Needless to say, this means Cogito Discover can save businesses an immense amount of time and broaden the scope of text searching activities, which results in significant cost savings.

Cogito has some great success stories, including:
(JARGON FREE: This technology has some REALLY powerful business applications that can seriously benefit a company’s ability to deliver better service and save significant amounts of money).
Intraversed are proud to be an authorised distributor for Cogito Discover and Expert System’s other COGITO® applications. We’re excited to see Australian organisations able to access the best technology available to streamline and grow their businesses.
We’ve become a Cogito distributor because our own Intralign® software and services enable businesses to create language taxonomies and language relationships. This makes it uniquely suited to create, clarify and guide the governance and development of any custom taxonomy and relationship data that Cogito Discover requires.
So when businesses use the two technologies together, the power and value of your large volume, unstructured data can be unlocked almost immediately.
Our friends at Expert System recognised this too and we quickly saw the added value customers would gain when both products were used together.
We would love to come out and give you a demo of the COGITO® software. Why not give us a call and set up a time to discover COGITO®.
And tell us what your experience with unstructured data reading technology has been? Can you see areas of your business that could benefit from truly effective reading of text based information?
Mark is a co-founder & Chief Development Officer at Intraversed, helping organisations establish the Intralign Ecosystem, an award winning information management & governance methodology, to achieve reliable information, stable tech spend & greater IT project success.
