Holmes Semantic Solutions (Ho2S) is the French leader in the provision of semantic and linguistic services. Thanks to the constant development of language resources, these services can be provided in several languages.
In order to guarantee solutions at the forefront of the technological curve, research activity is fundamental. Ho2S participates in various research projects, in cooperation with European-level centers of excellence, universities and innovative companies.
Research at Ho2S focuses on automated analysis of natural language and text comprehension. More specifically, research activities are concentrated on parsing and natural language semantics, cross-language information retrieval and sentiment analysis.
