Predictive text experts WordLogic launch new solution for businesses

WordLogic for Business boosts accuracy and productivity for enterprises, works across multiple devices and platforms

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA - 31 January 2013 - WordLogic Corporation (OTCQB:WLGC), the predictive intelligence technology company that creates patented solutions for mobiles, tablets and desktops, today released its new predictive text solution, WordLogic for Business, allowing organizations to improve productivity through accurate, faster and more consistent text entry across the workforce. WordLogic for Business is built on WordLogic's patented predictive text technology, delivering a powerful software solution which can scale across hundreds of touchscreen and conventional keyboard-based devices. WordLogic for Business also gives organizations the ability to customize language, terminology as well as the user interface to suit multiple business scenarios.

WordLogic for Business is aimed at companies of every size, from multinationals to small and medium-sized businesses. At its heart is a series of customizable dictionaries stored in the Cloud which can house millions of complex industry or company-specific words and phrases. These dictionaries can be centrally managed and updated with new words, terminology and phrases specific to a company or industry sector - such as Healthcare, Utilities and Legal. Multiple dictionaries can also be accessed by one device. This level of flexibility means that companies using WordLogic for Business can create versions tailored to their precise language needs.

WordLogic for Business is optimized to run on Android tablets and smartphones as well as desktop PCs. It can also be used with custom touchscreen devices, such as touchscreen PDAs used by couriers and delivery companies. WordLogic for Business automatically syncs across all devices currently in use and delivers a consistent, high-quality experience for the end-user, irrespective of the device or platform they are using. Companies seeking to adopt predictive text can build WordLogic for Business into their existing IT infrastructure using WordLogic's simple SDK.

WordLogic's range of solutions are built upon a number of recognized international patents. Unlike rival solutions that can only predict single words, WordLogic's patented WordChunking™ technology predicts letters, words and entire phrases, and continuously learns new ones. Its patented Gesturing™ technology also lets workers enter words and phrases on their devices at high speed and with full accuracy, simply with small movements of their fingers. This boosts workers' productivity, which in turn saves businesses time and money.

"Through our continuing work with our customers we've become acutely aware of the varying demands of different vertical sectors and their specific language and terminology. These are issues which are impeding the wholesale adoption of touchscreen devices in the enterprise," said WordLogic CTO Mark Dostie. "A legal professional uses a completely different vocabulary of words and phrases compared to a doctor, so there's no place for a 'one size fits all' approach. WordLogic's sophisticated predictive Artificial Intelligence and cloud-based, customizable dictionary system is flexible enough to accommodate the individual language requirements of all of these industries. This allows workers to quickly and accurately input mission-critical information and updates and frees them up to focus on other important tasks."

WordLogic for Business is available worldwide to businesses of all sizes as either a fully-hosted service from WordLogic or installed and internally hosted on the customer's systems and is available in multiple languages. For more information visit

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, will introduce the technologies required for implementing these ideas and some early experiments performed in the Kurento open source software community in areas ...
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, will discuss the impact of technology on identity. Should we federate, or not? How should identity be secured? Who owns the identity? How is identity ...
The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.
The buzz continues for cloud, data analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT) and their collective impact across all industries.

The Internet of Everything is re-shaping technology trends–moving away from “request/response” architecture to an “always-on” Streaming Web where data is in constant motion and secure, reliable communication is an absolute necessity. As more and more THINGS go online, the challenges that developers will need to address will only increase exponentially. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Todd Greene, Founder & CEO of PubNub, will explore the current state of IoT connectivity and review key trends and technology requirements that will drive the Internet of Things from hype to reality.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....
You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
Today’s connected world is moving from devices towards things, what this means is that by using increasingly low cost sensors embedded in devices we can create many new use cases. These span across use cases in cities, vehicles, home, offices, factories, retail environments, worksites, health, logistics, and health. These use cases rely on ubiquitous connectivity and generate massive amounts of data at scale. These technologies enable new business opportunities, ways to optimize and automate, along with new ways to engage with users.
The IoT is upon us, but today’s databases, built on 30-year-old math, require multiple platforms to create a single solution. Data demands of the IoT require Big Data systems that can handle ingest, transactions and analytics concurrently adapting to varied situations as they occur, with speed at scale. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chad Jones, chief strategy officer at Deep Information Sciences, will look differently at IoT data so enterprises can fully leverage their IoT potential. He’ll share tips on how to speed up business initiatives, harness Big Data and remain one step ahead by apply...
There will be 20 billion IoT devices connected to the Internet soon. What if we could control these devices with our voice, mind, or gestures? What if we could teach these devices how to talk to each other? What if these devices could learn how to interact with us (and each other) to make our lives better? What if Jarvis was real? How can I gain these super powers? In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, will show you!

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target - this makes the integration of these separate pipelines and the coordination of software upd...
Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...
