Food safety gets text mining tool
TNO has deployed the Linguamatics' I2E semantic knowledge-discovery platform to provide insights and intelligence within the food safety domain.
'At TNO we are developing a food safety alerting system to support risk managers in industry and government agencies,' said Fred van de Brug, Project Leader at TNO.
'TNO possesses unique multidisciplinary expertise and knowledge concerning food safety issues. By combining this knowledge with effective mining of scientific literature and news articles, risk managers can gain early awareness and intelligence about possible risks to food production. TNO chose the I2E text mining platform because of its flexibility and power to increase precision and recall of relevant information,' he added.
