In this blog post, you can read how you can use our technology intelligence solution texploro to conduct structured competitive and R&D analyses, and what we are currently working on to make your search results even more effective.
From daily information overload to strategic decision making
How many employees and departments in your company deal with market observation and developments in the technology sector? How do you bring together interesting results and findings? Do you use information advantages to your economic advantage in the long term? Without software support, structured organizational learning and knowledge management has become almost impossible. Our data intelligence platform texploro provides you with a solution that was designed for the identification and analysis of technology trends along the innovation lifecycle and is continuously being developed further.
How texploro works
texploro can be individually tailored to your knowledge needs. The knowledge database includes aggregated information from freely accessible and licensable online resources such as scientific publications, company directories, patent announcements, subject-specific news portals and much more. Based on your content configurations, you will receive continuously updated search results, which you can optimize, dynamically change and manage independently without programming effort using our data science and NLP features.
Artificial intelligence as a knowledge turbo
We have been involved in trend monitoring for leading technology companies and automotive manufacturers for several decades. The last few years in particular have resulted in an enormous performance boost for our solution. With the rapid increase of available Transformer models and the exponentially increasing performance, we were able to make artificial intelligence concretely usable for texploro. This has already significantly reduced the effort required to extract relevant information from resources.
Current research focus: Automated “Data Labelling “
Together with the Speech & Language Technology Lab of the DFKI (German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence) and the digital experts of Neofonie | Ontolux, we are working on a research project until 2025 to better address one of the biggest AI challenges with automated technology recognition. Consistent and high-quality data is essential for accurate results. The challenge here is to develop fundamentally new approaches with deep learning-supported text mining in order to reach the next evolutionary stage of technology monitoring.
June 15, 2023 is the 40th anniversary of inpro‘s founding. Just as we are proud of our history and successes of holistic innovation management in the automotive industry, our focus on the further development of our ecosystem is important to us.
COMAN, a spin-off of inpro, is now on a global expansion course with its solution for digital project management. Started as a project idea and study in inpro‘s innovation incubator, the company is now a successful software provider for the efficient and transparent planning and execution of large-scale industrial projects.
