We are a small consulting firm based in London, UK, specialized in the application of computational linguistics to real life problems. We are a group of academics, with extensive background and research experience in linguistics, computer science, and computational linguistics, and experience in programming and managing implementations.
One of the biggest obstacles in academic research is to find actual data to work with. We are therefore very excited to bring our theoretical experience and programming knowledge to new kinds of data sets, and we pride ourselves in providing practical, efficient solutions that are useful for our clients.
We believe the most important foundation for a new project is to understand the purpose. We like to start a project with thorough data analysis and requirements analysis — after all, it’s no use developing a tool if it doesn’t work with your data, and even less use if in the end it doesn’t do what you thought it would.
We design efficient, state-of-the-art software systems to meet the established requirements — using off-the-shelf and open source components where possible, or by developing application-specific infrastructure where necessary. We can also manage and train your programmers to do the development and long-term maintenance of the system, so that you can have complete control of the implementation.
We are interested in hearing about new opportunities, so do get in touch if you have data that needs to be analysed, understood, or converted to language.
We specialize in a wide range of linguistic applications, from named entity extraction to natural language generation, and if we don’t have any expertise in a specific area, we are always happy to refer you to someone who knows more than we do.
