Transinsight wins German public tender for the National Academy of Sciences - Leopoldina for creating a semantic search engine on demographic change


19 May 2015 Dresden - Social consequences associated with demographic change are difficult to predict, but at the same time highly important. Predictions about the development of a predominately aging society require a reliable database from which predictions can be calculated. The heterogeneous research landscape on demographic change complicates the collection and homogenisation of research considerably. Constant change also makes profound scientific analysis enormously difficult to predict.

By agreeing to inform the German government about possible future developments, Transinsight's newest project the "Research-Atlas on demographic change" was brought to life. Particular attention has been paid to interdisciplinary aspects and relevance of information, both perfectly suited to an intelligent semantic software system. Automatic daily Internet monitoring of more than 40 different databases and linking this information by semantic knowledge networks will bring deep insights into the field of demographic analysis.

"Constant intelligent (semantic) monitoring of the research landscape on demographic change is an important prerequisite to adequately meet social challenges", stated Prof. Dr. Michael Schroeder, Technical University of Dresden.

One such brain-like software solution has been developed by the Transinsight GmbH in cooperation with the TU Dresden for more than 10 years and is the ideal base for such a monitoring system. "Transinsight is proud to have won such a well-known institution like the German Academy of Sciences - Leopoldina - in a public tender as customer. This shows that our solutions are not only technically superior to those of competitors, but also that we are competitively priced. Congratulations to our team", stated Dr. Michael R. Alvers, co-founder and CEO of Transinsight.
