Identifying semantic inferences between text units is a major underlying language processing task, needed in practically all text understanding applications. While such inferences are broadly needed, there are currently no generic semantic “engines” or platforms for broad textual inference. The primary scientific motivation for the EXCITEMENT project is to change this ineffective state of affairs and to offer an encompassing open source platform for textual inference. On the industrial side, EXCITEMENT is focused on the text analytics and speech analytics markets and follows the increasing demand for automatically analyzing customer interactions, which today cross multiple channels including speech, email, chat and social media.
