Structure users unstructured content with Luxid®
The shift to digital has presented information providers with new business opportunities and customer expectations. In this context, semantic content enrichment has emerged as a genuinely game-changing capability for competing effectively:
• Luxid® makes content more compelling
Semantic content enrichment enhances the audience's experience in discovering, navigating and analyzing content. Semantics boosts content find ability and discoverability through improved SEO, navigational facets, links to related content, and powerful analytics.
• Luxid® helps develop innovative products
Semantic enrichment promotes the efficient packaging of content into new types of products. Topic pages and API-driven content feeds leverage structured and highly granular semantic metadata to deliver topical collections answering the needs of targeted audiences.
• Luxid® boosts editorial productivity
Semantic content enrichment automates tagging, categorization and linking, thus reducing the effort required to accomplish tasks that were previously manual.
As electronics become smaller and faster, the adoption of "wearables", like smart watches, has increased. However, like regular computers, wearables are vulnerable to conventional hacking. What if we could use the human body itself to transfer and collect information? This area of research is known as human body communication (HBC).
