"Creating and configuring a client profile is easy and intuitive. Gavagai Monitor’s target editor suggests related terms as you configure targets which makes the job a lot easier than in other tools. In terms of the actual monitoring, we have used a third-party custom integration of Gavagai’s API in The Swedish Social Insurance Agency's dashboard."

Inflection and distribution (or “are ‘lentil’ and ‘lentils’ the same word?”)

People who know about languages with rich inflectional systems often ask us how Gavagai handles morphology, i.e. the inflections and derivations words can be subject to in some languages. In English, for instance, a noun can be in singular and plural number and each can take a genitive ending: base form genitive singular lentil lentil’s plural lentils lentils’ which is not too complex. In Swedish a noun can take number, definiteness, and genitive, yielding eight surface forms for most nouns: base form genitive non definite definite non definite definite singular sill sillen sills sillens plural sillar sillarna sillars sillarnas which…


Dreaming in Another Language

When I moved to Stockholm and started learning Swedish, it seemed to occupy all my time and thoughts. It was an intensive course, 3 hours every day via communicative method with focus on talking and practical use of language, plus homework in the evenings. One day, my friend asked me “So, do you dream in Swedish already?”.

In those dreams I could talk and understand everyone, even the thoughts that I had…


Gavagai provides services for citizen observatories

Gavagai is proud to be providing services to UNESCO-IHE and other partners of the Ground Truth 2.0 which is a project for developing citizen observatories on climate change and related matters in several countries: the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Sweden, Kenya, and Zambia. Gavagai will both use the Gavagai Explorer to process text material gathered by rapporteurs in the field (such as species observations and other similar responses) in many languages and will also provide media analysis of the attitude of the general population vis-a-vis concepts of interest to the project. This project is in line with several others that leverage…


What’s that Odor?

I use Gavagai Lexicon extensively to lookup the actual use of words present in everyday online language. So, when the notion of “odor”, for some reason, popped up at the office yesterday, I turned to the Lexicon to see what our self-learning semantic memory has learned about it. The annotated screenshot below shows that the semantic memory knows three fairly distinct meanings of “odor”. The most prominent one has to do with “smell, stench, reeked”. A second meaning has to do with odor as instrumental in alerting people to something else, such as “foul odor alerted residents to dead body”. The…
