|Meet the Future of Search, a Siri for Websites|
Apple’s Siri helps you find relevant information and has changed how people access information. The Swedish startup Saplo does the same for websites but without any need for you to tell Saplo what you are interested in.
Instead of asking what you are interested in Saplo analyzes what type of content you interact with and then automatically give you the most relevant information. Its called text analytics and uses technologies that mimic how the brain learn languages.
Its sort of like having thousands of people reading texts for you and telling you whats relevant for you says Mattias Tyrberg Founder & CEO of Saplo
So instead of trying to manually search to find interesting information text analysis helps you find it automatically. This works on any text site such as news sites, email and intranets. Saplo was chosen as one of the 20 most innovative companies in Sweden and will now be showed in an exhibition at Stanford. The exhibition will show many different innovations but all with the same potential to become the next Skype or Spotify.
Both Skype and Spotify starts with S so I think we have a good chance for success. We believe that soon there will be three well-known “S” companies from Sweden says CEO Mattias Tyrberg.
Saplo is a Swedish company based on high profile academic research on semantic technologies that develops methods and technologies for automatic text analysis that mimic how humans read and evaluate text. The company was founded 2008 and have known investors such as Göran Grosskopf, chairman of Stichting INGKA Foundation (IKEA’s holding company and one of the wealthiest foundations in the world).
You will be able to experience the innovation Saplo and 19 other innovations from Swedish startup companies at an exhibition presenting innovative solutions to old and new problems during INNOVATIVE SWEDEN at Stanford University November 2-9. The companies taking part operate in the fields of Information and Communication Technology, Life Science, Gaming and Clean Technology.
