Commenting on winning the award, executive chairman, John M. Brimacombe said, ‘Traditionally, the US has been a hard market for British companies to succeed in. But through the strength of our world-class technology and the outstanding team we have built, we have become a market-leader. Cambridge has an international reputation for excellence and we are proud to be a successful Cambridge technology company, flying the flag for innovation in the UK.’

Linguamatics’ software platform, I2E, uses NLP to go beyond conventional search and understand the meaning of text.  I2E uses computer algorithms to automatically mine, analyse and connect relevant knowledge buried in vast amounts of textual data and generate higher quality, targeted results for better decision support. I2E can be used to mine a wide variety of text resources, such as scientific literature, patents, Electronic Health Records (EHRs), clinical trials data, news feeds, social media and proprietary content. I2E can be deployed as an in-house enterprise system, or as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) on the cloud.
