Connotate Selected to Automate Knowledge Management Process at The Associated Press
Agent Community GEN2 Provides Enterprise Class Solution for Content Detection, Extraction and Acquisition
NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ – Connotate Technologies, Inc., the leading provider of solutions which transform the Web into standardized, reliable information and applications, today announced that The Associated Press (AP) has deployed Connotate’s Agent Community GEN2. AP’s goal is to automate the collection of content from thousands of member newspapers, radio, television and global broadcast companies in order to supply an enriched, standard view of that data to their members and a web 2.0 audience.
“Connotate has allowed us to automate a tedious, time-consuming process with an enterprise class solution for content detection, extraction and acquisition,” said Lorraine Cichowski, AP’s Senior Vice President, Technology. “This has dramatically increased the reach, timeliness, and accuracy of our news ingestion operation.”
AP is the backbone of the global information system serving thousands of daily newspaper, radio, television and online customers with coverage in all media and news in all formats. Leveraging the flexibility, robustness and scalability of Connotate’s Agent Community GEN2 solution, AP can now automate and enhance the way it ingests and normalizes news content from disparate sources.
“The ability to provide a unified view and be alerted to new content will greatly enhance AP’s ability to provide important news to their members,” said Bruce Molloy , CEO of Connotate Technologies, Inc. “It takes a thought-leader like the Associated Press to harness the wealth of knowledge available through the semantic Web and deliver only the relevant, unique news to their customers.”
