Artificial intelligence (AI) is revolutionizing the way we live, work, and interact. This is why Atex decided to create the Atex AI Platform, a technological and innovative laboratory within Atex, dedicated to the development of use cases that exploit the different potentialities of Artificial Intelligence in the newsrooms. Among these use cases, smart tagging allows publishing archives to be categorized automatically, saving time and resources.

To help accomplish this, they looked to their longtime partner Babelscape, a leading AI research company recognized for commercializing their innovative multilingual deep learning technologies to meet the growing needs of global Fortune 500 businesses.

Professor Roberto Navigli, researcher, innovator, and Babelscape co-founder, leads a team of developers that include multiple PhD industrial engineers, to build cutting-edge, state-of-the-art, multilingual semantic software. Their products improve natural language processing and understanding by leveraging the latest research and techniques (including machine and deep learning, symbolic AI, and neural networks).

Professor Roberto Navigli, Chief Researcher and Co-Founder of Babelscape:

“We’re proud to be working with Atex to leverage our AI-powered multilingual text analytics capabilities, to bring new powerful features to their platform users. These new tools not only add efficiency and cost savings to their editor’s workflows but also increase the audiences for the content published on their CMS, by making it more discoverable through ‘smart tagging’.”

Michele Alessandrini, Chief Technology Officer of Atex:

“Atex built the Atex AI Platform to allow their customers to access all the benefits of artificial intelligence in an easy, controlled and integrated way. The partnership with Babelscape allows us to plug their experience into the workflows of our customers by creating a feedback loop between the algorithms and the data. The result is to be able to offer a service not just able to interpret a language but to do so within the context of our publishers’ domains.”
