LangTec aims for the sky

Celebrating the finale of this beautiful summer, the team from LangTec team went climbing in the shrouds of the museum ship Rickmer Rickmers. Fantastic weather allowed us to admire a beautiful panoramic view over the harbour of Hamburg. After that, we enjoyed Indian-Ayurvedic cuisine in the restaurant Maharaja.

At our team event, we could prove our team work: on some team building activities the cooperation was running like a clockwork, sometimes even on the first try!

Need Massive Amounts of Training Data for Machine Learning? Come and Meet DataGenerator!

Gone are the days when machine learning (ML) was limited by too few training data. Many use cases today require machine learning algorithms to learn complex patterns from huge amounts of training data. In most use cases, however, these training data are hard to come by, especially when dealing with highly personal or confidential document types such as IDs, insurance contracts or social security cards.
To remedy this, LangTec has created DataGenerator, a customised AI solution for generating massively varied amounts of training data based on a very small number of representative sample documents. DataGenerator permits to generate literally hundreds of thousands of unique document instances based on which even the most data-hungry learning algorithms will have enough to munch on.

LangTec Kicks BIG AI’s Butt, Hands Down

Wow … David vs. Goliath, featuring LangTec in the role as David.
One of our financial-sector clients decided to pitch LangTec’s customised information extraction solution against an internationally advertised, high-end commerical semantics engine developed by a global tech superpower. And guess what? Our machine learning solution achieved extraction accuracies double that of Goliath’s electronic superbrain!
And yeah, just in case you were wondering: We’re damn proud of that 🙂
