With Terror in Mind, a Formulaic Way to Parse Sentences
By Noah Shachtman
...Attensity, based in Palo Alto, Calif., and financed in part by In-Q-Tel,
the C.I.A.'s investment arm, has developed a method to parse electronic
documents almost instantly, and diagram all of the sentences inside.
('Moby-Dick,' for instance, took all of nine and a half seconds.) By
labeling subjects and verbs and other parts of speech, Attensity's software
gives the documents a definable structure, a way to
fit into a database. And that helps turn day-to-day chatter into
information that is relevant and usable.
