Awards and Honors

A Tradition of Excellence

At Language Computer, we're convinced that evaluation should play an important role in the development of any new technology.

Even though we're focused on developing "next-generation" NLP systems, we know that our customers expect our products to simply work. Whether you're an operational user out in the field or an information consumer here at home, we know that there's nothing frustrating than a tool that doesn't perform as advertised.

For that reason, we've never been shy about evaluating our products in public. Since 1999, Language Computer's products have participated in more than 25 U.S. Government-sponsored evaluations of natural language processing systems.

We've done pretty well, too. Our question answering systems received top marks at 9 of the past 10 U.S. Government-sponsored Text Retrieval Conference (TREC) evaluations, while our multi-document summarization systems have been among the best systems evaluated at the past 5 annual Document Understanding Conference (DUC) evaluations, and our textual inference and content validation systems have finished first at the past two European Community-funded PASCAL Recognizing Textual Entailment (RTE) Challenges.
