If everybody becomes digital - what then? Who is able to process the data and the entanglements of data? 80% of the data we have today is dark. thingsTHINKING brings semantic processing of natural language to computers. It aims at giving the computer common sense to process text (and other data structures) in a way that is currently limited to humans. thingsTHINKING is part of the new cognitive computing streams in the industry. Over 10 years of academic research, case studies with large companies from automotive, accounting. software, legal, and manufacturing show that there is a big need for the semantic processing using the tool sets we created. thingsTHINKING supports humans in working with language, e.g. specifications for products or contracts in the legal world.
