May 30, 2011

Linguistic Agents now possesses a unique technological capability that allows it to address the natural- language-processing needs of the rapidly expanding social and mobile markets.

Our linguistic technology produces higher resolution output and has significant advantages over statistical NLP.

Some companies in the field seem to be using a statistical approach to NLP. In a recent lecture, Chomsky blasts statistical NLP calling it “a total failure, a radical failure” In addition, Chomsky points out that these methods don’t work, and yet they are “regarded as a success”.

Linguistic Agents is concentrating on computerizing Chomskian linguistics.

Once available, linguistic support is likely to become an essential and indispensible component for social networking.
