Great new tool for Pharmaceutical researchers
Our partners over at Raritan Technologies Inc. have recently released a great tool they developed using the Lexalytics, Inc. Salence toolkit. The product, Topic Explorer, provides a way for users to dig through content and explore concepts from Raritan's extensive knowledgebase of medical terminology, augmented by the text analytics capabilities provided by Lexalytics. Many of you will remember Lexalytics as the company that provided great sentiment analysis in the original FAST ESP product prior to the acquisition by Microsoft.
Raritan co-founder Ted Sullivan gives a great video demo of the product you should see.
What's really great about Topic Explorer is that it isn't limited to just pharma. With the right taxonomy, it can be a great research tool for just about any vertical - risk management, eDiscovery, patent research, and more.
Topic Explorer is a search technology neutral product, so it will work with your current solution whether you're using Lucene/Solr or a popular commercial technolgy. Contact Raritan at 908-668-8181 Extentsion 110. Tell them you read it here!
