 Access Innovations, Inc., provider of Data Harmony software solutions, is proud to announce they have been named as a Sample Vendor in Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Natural Language Technologies, 2022 under “Text autoclassification”. The report is intended to “assist IT leaders in assessing how and where these new opportunities and methods can best be applied.”

In the report, Gartner analyst Stephen Emmott describes Text autoclassification as “encompasses a range of techniques that automatically associate metadata with text to enrich the text’s content. The target text can be of any length, from messages (such as tweets and emails) to whole documents. The metadata — typically in the form of keywords drawn from a taxonomy or ontology — facilitates the selection, analysis and automated processing of the text it represents.”

Mr. Emmott goes on to say this is important because “Autoclassification facilitates automated processing of content at scale, to augment or automate work. Relying on employees to classify results in variable quality and consistency of classification, or none at all, and, therefore, an inability to scale/adapt. This obstructs the use or flow of content. Advances in the application of machine learningknowledge graphs and natural language processing have enabled automated attribution that diminishes the need for manual, human classification, but still requires oversight.”

Knowledge Management (KM) is another area where text autoclassification is a foundational technology. According to another source, spending on KM is the top category under IT expenditures, reaching $62.5 billion in 2022, overtaking virtual assistants, which also rely on text autoclassification.

“We’ve known for a long time that text autoclassification is a key technology for many areas within the broader arena of information management and retrieval,” quipped Marjorie M. K. Hlava, President, and Founder of Access Innovations. “It’s validating to see that the rest of the world is finally catching on.”
