News Event detection

News Event detection is a use scenario of our semantic processing platform in which a stream of news messages is automatically converted into a computer readable stream of relevant news events that reflect the semantics of the original news message.

Financial news is the prime source of input for informed trading and risk management decisions. To automatically support these decisions an objective measure of the content of news is required. SemLab’s semantic news analysis platform ViewerPro offers such a measure. This technology allows you to express your business knowledge to determine important events described in the news. These events are used to determine the expected impact of the news on the value or volatility of your portfolio. ViewerPro can be integrated with any source of textual news and can be configured to process hundreds of messages per second, for thousands of securities simultaneously – far beyond the reach of any human analysist!
