We just published a report about a new tool that semi-automatically generates taxonomies by using text analytics and linked data from the Semantic Web. Pingar, a company headquartered in New Zealand, has developed a technology that allows the creation of one or more custom-built taxonomies in a more or less automatic fashion by reading documents, extracting key terms and phrases and then organizing those key terms and phrases with the help of semantic Web data coming from sources like Wikipedia, Freebase and the hundreds of other authoritative Web services. Pingar's taxonomy generation services use state of the art text analytics and semantic Web technologies based on authoritative information sources to automate and streamline the process of generating custom taxonomies which organizations can then use to improve search, retrieval and overall information access and re-use.
