July 18, 2016 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream, a leading provider of Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) Apps, announced today that it has been granted a US Patent for “System and Method for Rule Based Classification of a Text Fragment.” The patent, issued on May 24, 2016, covers MetricStream’s creation of a classification system that classifies text fragments and implements domain rules, which is different than a standard natural language processing technique that uses the probabilistic characteristics of the language. The MetricStream innovation provides a classification system that classifies text (e.g., one or more sentences) obtained from multimedia content (e.g., digitized handwritten notes, digitized spoken words, digitized audio content, texts from social media, email, etc).

MetricStream is leveraging this text fragment classification technology in convergence with other emerging analytics technologies to power today’s high performing digital businesses with a true system of intelligence that allows them to predict areas of risk, and balance opportunities effectively. As the industry leader in GRC, MetricStream is continuously innovating and leveraging its latest cutting-edge technology advancements in order to enhance its solutions as well as address new GRC use-cases such as Regulatory Change Management, Social Risk Management, and Cybersecurity, Threat and Vulnerability Management.
