BCL receives a National Science Foundation SBIR award

BCL Technologies won the National Science Foundation (NSF) SBIR Phase I award. In its Phase I NSF research BCL Technologies will develop a financial data extraction system that uses machine learning and Natural Language Processing methods.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is a United States government agency that supports fundamental research and education in all the non-medical fields of science and engineering.

NSF SBIR/STTR programs incentivize and enable startups and small business to undertake R&D with high technical risk and high commercial reward.

We will be presenting at the 2013 International Conference on Artificial Intelligence (ICAI)

We are going to present our latest research project, "Automated Financial Data Extraction - An AI Approach," at the 2013 International Conference on Artificial Intelligence (ICAI). The conference will be held on July 22-25, 2013 in Las Vegas, USA.

BCL Technologies has been a leader in performing research that combines the fields of Natural Language Processing and Document Analysis & Recognition. Our widely published research on document layout analysis has been incorporated in our award winning document conversion products.

We have also developed a simplified and automated way to create an SEC-compliant XBRL document. The primary goals are to:
  • Identify and extract DEI (Document Entity Information)
  • Locate, extract, and modify the four financial tables (Income statement, cash flow, balance sheet, and stockholders’ equity)
  • Extract and present parenthetical information from the four financials in a tabular format
  • Extract financial notes
  • Detail tag
ICAI is an international conference that serves researchers, scholars, professionals, students, and academicians who are looking to both foster working relationships and gain access to the latest research results. It is being held jointly (same location and dates) with a number of other research conferences; namely, The 2013 World Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing (WORLDCOMP). The Congress is the largest annual gathering of researchers in computer science, computer engineering and applied computing.
