Basis Technology Delivers Entity Extraction To Microsoft Live(tm) Search

Rosette(r) Entity Extractor Scans News and Locates Key Information

Cambridge, Massachusetts, June 26, 2007 -- Basis Technology (www.basistech.com), announced today that Microsoft has licensed its RosetteĀ® Entity Extractor (REX) to enhance the user experience on Microsoft Live(tm) Search by adding news results to specific user queries.

REX helps organizations use information locked in unstructured data that cannot be found through simple keyword matching. Advanced statistical algorithms enable discovery of entities like names, places, dates, and other phrases that establish the real meaning in text. Live Search processes web documents through REX to create a list of "names in the news." When user's queries match this list, Live Search knows it could be related to the news and adds news to the results display
