About Collexis Holdings, Inc.
Collexis Holdings, Inc., a leading developer of semantic search and
knowledge discovery software is headquartered in Columbia, South Carolina
(USA) with operations in Cincinnati, Ohio and Cologne, Germany. Collexis now
offers the world's first pre-populated scientific social network for life
science researchers, http://www.biomedexperts.com . Collexis' proprietary
technology builds conceptual profiles of text, called Fingerprints, from
documents, Websites, emails and other digitized content and matches them with
a comprehensive list of pre-defined "fingerprinted" concepts to make research
results more relevant and efficient. This matching of concepts eliminates the
ambiguity and lack of priority associated with word searches. The results are
often described as "finding needles in many haystacks." Through this novel
approach, Collexis can build unique applications to search, index and
aggregate information as well as prioritize, trend and predict data based on
sources in multiple industries without the limitations of language or dialect.
