Danvers, Mass. – Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), creating global licensing and content solutions that make copyright work, has entered a partnership with Cambridge, UK-based SciBite, a leading provider of semantic solutions for the Life Sciences and Pharmaceutical industries. CCC will work with SciBite to further support customers’ needs in text analytics and semantic search.
SciBite’s software suite, which includes its high-performance TERMite text processing engine and highly enriched associated ontologies, quickly identifies and extracts scientific terminology from unstructured text and transforms it into machine-readable data, enabling researchers to make better informed and more timely decisions.
“It has been a challenge to integrate, extract and analyze knowledge locked within unstructured biomedical text, and increasing volumes, varieties and sources of information only add to the task,” said Rob Greenwood, CEO, SciBite. “So we created a semantics-based informatics environment in which text and structured data are easily connected.”
“Based on input directly from customers, CCC sought a partnership with SciBite,” said Tracey Armstrong, President & CEO, CCC. “The combination of SciBite’s software suite and CCC’s workflow solutions brings the power of semantic enrichment to CCC’s customers.”
