About us

We are a Swiss company that delivers state-of-the-art solutions for collecting, understanding, enriching and using information, in domains as diverse as financial services, customer care, the life sciences, e-commerce, and education.

Our powerful software stack seamlessly combines natural language processing, intelligent information retrieval, and semantic reasoning, to extract organizational knowledge from any public or customer-specific sources, and make it available in usable, applicable forms.
