Amnon Meyers - Chief Technology Officer and Co-Founder
has more than two decades of cutting-edge experience in the area of natural language processing, leading the creation of innovative systems and approaches in aerospace and in the university.
Amnon has a BS in Biology from MIT and MS degrees in Chemistry and Computer Science from UC Berkeley.
At UC Irvine
conceived a knowledge representation framework, which he
used in creating VOX (Vocabulary Extension System) under contract to the Navy and DARPA.
VOX inspired the launch of the well-known Message Understanding Conference (MUC) held periodically by DARPA . At McDonnell Douglas (1988-93), he
and David de Hilster (also at TAI) developed TexUS (Text Understanding System).
At TRW (1993-98), he
and David built a new DEFT (Data Extraction From Text) system for the InfoWeb document management system.
These systems were key to several contract wins for their respective companies.
career is marked by successive advances in a pragmatic line of natural language processing research, emphasizing tool kits for NLP.
He brings his accumulated experiences to bear in leading Text Analysis International's advanced technology development.
