Ginger Software - Company Overview
Ginger’s mission is to build products deeply rooted in the Semantic Web and more specifically in Natural Language Processing (NLP), which revolutionize the way computers and mobile devices understand language.
Ginger’s patent-pending technology understands the context and semantic meaning of written text by comparing the sentence to billions of similar sentences from the web. Ginger’s first product in the market is the Ginger Proofreader, a free grammar and spell checker that corrects mistakes while considering their intended meaning.
The context challenge
Spelling and grammar checkers have been around for a long time and have become a basic requirement for every word processing or email service. However, one of the major barriers that distinguish these softwares from human editors is that they don’t “understand” context. The phrase “let’s grab a bear”, for example, is correct in both spelling and grammar, but is obviously not what the writer intended (Ginger would suggest “beer”).
The context challenge is therefore considered the greatest barrier in the computational linguistics field and the “holy grail” for computer-assisted language improvement software.
Ginger breaks the context barrier
Based on extensive research and development, the amazing Ginger team has developed a patent-pending technology that breaks the context barrier. Ginger’s NLP Platform crawls the web and analyzes the contents of Millions of web pages to create statistical linguistic patterns. These patterns are used to understand the probable meaning of a written sentence, and the most probable intent of the user. The NLP platform enables a variety of future applications and services other than proofreading styling and rephrasing, speech recognition, and more.
