Digital Reasoning secures additional patent

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.)

Sitemason takes aim at Wordpress

Sitemason says it is going to take on Wordpress with the release of a new content management system that will get its formal unveiling next week at the Belcourt Theatre.

The new release, Sitemason 6, has been re-imagined, re-programmed and re-designed to be the preferred alternative to WordPress and Drupal for creatives. As an alternative to other hosted systems, Sitemason has built a fully-supported, hosted platform for creatives to build their web and mobile visions.


Byron Fanning, chief relationship officer, stated, “The creative population is ready for something that doesn’t require ‘workarounds,’ ‘themes,’ and ‘throttled web traffic’ solutions. With the insight, thoughtfulness and generous contributions of some of the most respected web developers we know, we’ve re-launched the most advanced version of Sitemason for a market that reaches far beyond Nashville. However, we want the Nashville community to be the first to see and experience the new Sitemason.”
