Local software company Digital Reasoning announced today that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued it a patent related to image resolution.
The patent (read more here), specifically for a "system and method for coreference resolution," is part of the Cool Springs-based company's portfolio that includes five issued patents and numerous other pending patent applications.
"We are now able to perform entity resolution at an unprecedented quality and scale,” Matthew Russell, Digital Reasoning chief technology officer, said in a release. “The benefit for consumers of our technology is that they'll be able to employ a machine to identify the unique identities for people, places, and organizations across millions of documents containing human language. Transforming digital human language data into actionable information is a monumental task that is difficult for even highly competent teams of subject matter experts to accomplish, and we can now use automated and customizable processes to do it in a scalable manner.”
The patent announcement follows the company’s recent addition of two enterprise software executives. (Read more here.)
Southern Land announced today that Charming Charlie, the Houston-based fashion jewelry and accessory store, will open this fall a retail location that will serve as an anchor at Southside at McEwen in Franklin.
In addition, home decor and interior design center Pierce & Co. will open at Southside this summer. Terms of the leases are not being disclosed.
Charming Charlie, which will occupy 5,000 square feet of space, first received recognition in 2004 with a concept involving a storybook of accessories created through color coordinating trends.
Pierce & Co. founder Jonathan Pierce gained national recognition as the lead designer in CMT Ultimate Country Home series as well as HGTV’s Interior’s Inc. The company is Nashville-based.
The two retailers will join, among others, lululemon, Mountain High Outfitters, Posh and Whole Foods. Southside at McEwen was completed in 2012 and sits adjacent to the office building Southern Land sold last year for $40 million.
