SHMsoft News: It’s All About Team Building

Let's take a quick look at what happened at SHMsoft last week:

  • Our team of programmers grew.  Together with our tester they are having a wonderful time developing, testing, fixing bugs, and documenting the new features.
  • OCR, imaging, and search have been added to SHMcloud and are in testing by our team.
  • Out beta testers are excited about the enhancements and are eagerly anticipating their use.
  • Our lead Natural Language Processing (NLP) developer started his work on the integration of the NLP technology for SHMcloud, in close collaboration with the technology provider.
  • SHMsoft’s total headcount grew to over twenty!
  • Our Lead Data Scientist is currently working on the analytics design for our NLP developer to implement.
  • Our marketing specialist and our technical editor are working full swing on our new web site.

Hi, will your NLP work and OCR work also be available under the open source license, or will this be proprietary?

Thank you,

there are two layers there, the legal one, for example, "what are the characteristics of a privileged document", and the technical one, "how do I analyze the text?"

The legal layer - we indeed have plans to open source it, when we are well into the development. The technical one will at first come from a library provider, and it is not open sourced, but it has great quality. We would also want to have a perhaps not so great quality open source layer, and that would be our next step.
