The first product to use our new semantic analysis platform has now gone alpha. That product is Bridger, a mobile service that instantly analyzes documents and web pages and then automatically generates profiles of people, places, organizations and technologies on the fly.
This weekend we had our first chance to see Bridger working on iOS 7 phones. I had my doubts about iOS 7 when it was announced but after working with it for a day there is more in it that I like than dislike. More importantly (for me) Bridger looks and works great. Here are a couple of screen shots from an iPhone 5 running the new OS.
This first screen is our launching point from which you explore your analyzed document:
The second screen shows the dynamic ranking of the people mentioned in this document. The higher the rank, the more important someone is within the context of the document:
Finally, here is the semantic cloud we create:
So we are all happy with the results and in a couple of weeks time Bridger is going to be released as a beta. Stay tuned for more news then.
Oh, and one final thing for Android users - don't despair. Bridger is 100% compatible as it is built with a html 5 front-end. We aim to support all modern Android and iOS 6 and 7 phones from day 1.
