Founded in 2000 by search engine pioneers, Exalead is a global software provider in the enterprise and Web search markets. Exalead's worldwide client base includes leading companies such as PSA Peugeot Citroën, ViaMichelin, GEFCO, American Greetings and Sanofi Aventis R&D, and more than 100 million unique users a month use Exalead's technology for search.
Today, Exalead is reshaping the digital content landscape with a platform that uses advanced semantic technologies to bring structure, meaning and accessibility to previously unused or under-utilized data in the disparate, heterogeneous enterprise informationcloud. The system collects data from virtually any source, in any format, and transforms it into structured, pervasive, contextualized building blocks of business information that can be directly searched and queried, or used as the foundation for a new breed of lean, innovative information access applications.
This revolutionary technology and others make Exalead one of the most important companies to watch in the fields of digital content search, discovery, management, security, and storage.
Dassault Systèmes (DS) (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA) a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions acquired Exalead in June, 2010.
Voxalead is a technology demonstrator developed by the ExaLabs team that searches inside multimedia content (audio and video).
The demo uses a Speech-to-Text transcription module from Vocapia to transcribe French, English, Dutch, Spanish, Arab, Russian and Chinese podcast news. The system can also take as inputs existing transcriptions (or any time coded texts) in any languages done manually or provided by another technology suppliers.
