We are pleased to announce that Applica sits at the #1 and #2 spots on the leaderboard for SemEval’s 2020 task 11, an objective industry test aimed at detection of propaganda techniques in news articles. The team that developed Applica’s 2D Contextual Awareness applied our proprietary technology in a similar manner for this project. Wins such as this, against some of the best minds in the world, highlights that Applica is undoubtably the industry leader in intelligent document comprehension.

SemEval is an ongoing series of evaluations on computational semantic systems that gathers the top scientists to compete in shared tasks every year.
