About AKOTA Technologies, LLC
AKOTA Technologies is a small, innovative organization dedicated to bringing human-like right brain reasoning capabilities to Text Analytics technologies. It is based in two locations – one in Wisconsin and one in Ohio.
Our flagship product AKOTA® is a new patent-pending software solution that can review thousands of documents in minutes using an analyst’s own expertise and judgment. AKOTA allows an analyst to develop a personal rating system for text-based information, such as document collections, logs, or message traffic, based on what is relevant to the task at hand and to the analyst who is reading these messages. AKOTA uses human-like reasoning and relies on the thought process of the analyst. While AKOTA was developed for Government Intelligence Organizations, it can be applied for military, cyber security, patent research, business, medical, academic, and technical data research. It can be used with most foreign languages. It uses XML inputs and produces XML outputs, so it can be easily integrated with other products. AKOTA can run continuously, creating a feedback loop of focused research and discovery.
