SAN FRANCISCO, CA–Banter Inc., a provider of next-generation technologies for e-communication, content classification and business process automation, has released version 4.5 of the Relationship Modeling Engine (RME).

Other features of RME v4.5 include:

  • Support for Unicode UTF-8, Unicode UTF-16 and Windows1252

  • New text mining and configuration tools
  • Extended and improved API for easier integration

“Banter’s RME version 4.5 sets new standards in accuracy, true multi-lingual support and ease of integration and deployment,” said Yoram Nelken, founder and CTO of Banter. “With theses extended capabilities, Banter is now well positioned to address the burgeoning global markets.”

RME v4.5 builds upon Banter’s highly successful core technology and its strengths include robust natural language processing of imperfect content; analytical semantic modeling and content classification; and feedback mechanisms that enable real-time learning and rapid, automatic adaptation to constantly changing business environments
