Based on the philosophy of the Semantic Web, Ontotext exploits text processing and automatic reasoning technologies to extract knowledge from texts and organise it conceptually in an ontology.
Unlike common search engines, the Ontotext Portal directly accesses the concepts and entities of the ontology and presents the user with structured information instead of mere portions of texts.
For each entity, the Ontotext Portal offers four different views:
- Articles: lists all the documents in which it is mentioned
- Citografo: shows how often it is mentioned
- Opinions: shows how often opinions are expressed about it
- Record: provides extra information about it
