Dresden, 12 October 2012 – The management consultancy company Detecon International, in cooperation with the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi), has awarded the first Detecon ICT Award for exceptional services and products in the field of the information and communication technology (ICT) sector. The award was presented at a ceremony for the opening of the new Detecon headquarters in Cologne. An independent jury has selected Transinsight from 24 nominees by secret ballot. Applications of individual companies for the prize were not provided.
Transinsight was awarded with the TrustedCloud participation at CeBIT 2011. The prize was given to 12 submissions out of 116 applications.
Transinsights Enterprise Semantic Intelligence® Knowledge Suite is nominated for the German Design Prize in Communication Design, the highest German award in Design. The nomination by the Federal Ministry for Economy (BMWi) can already be seen as a great honor since only products can be nominated already having a national or international prize. Only those products who have been nominated by Ministries of Industry or Senators in the individual German states, or by their highest competent (state) authorities, or by the German Design Council as commissioned by the Federal Ministry of Industry and Technology, can take part in the competition for the Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany.
Dr. George Tsatsaronis, who has recently joined the TU Dresden and Transinsight to do research on the development of new text mining algorithms for Transinsight’s GoPubMed, has been awarded the best paper and the best presentation award at the 11th International Conference on Intelligent Text Processing and Computational Linguistics 2010. His paper was titled “An Experimental Study on Unsupervised Graph-based Word Sense Disambiguation”, and was co-authored with Dr. Iraklis Varlamis and Prof. Kjetil Nørvåg.
Transinsight’s GoPubMed.com, the semantic search engine for the life sciences, has been recognized with the 2009 red dot: best of the best award in the category communication design – graphical user interfaces and interactive tool.
The Georg-Helm-Prize 2009 is awarded to Dr.-Ing. Andreas Doms for his dissertation on “GoPubMed: ontology-based literature search for the sciences”. The work deals with algorithms of a new search engine, Transinsight’s GoPubMed, which uses background knowledge to semantically navigate through large search results. The engine was developed in close cooperation with Transinsight.

The OUTPUT Award is offered to innovative projects of members of the Computer Science faculty of the Dresden Technical University. The jury consists of industry representatives from Saxony as well as academics. Five projects were selected for the final presentation round. The criteria for the winning project were scientific potential, students’ contributions, commercial potential and visibility. Transinsight’s GoPubMed was selected the winning project 2008. GoPubMed is a semantic search engine using background knowledge to help answer biomedical questions.
Dipl. Inf. Steffen Jaensch today receives the Lohrman Medal as the best student of the year 2007 in Informatics. The award is given for the best of the top 2 percent of every years’ alumni. Steffen carried out his master thesis (Diplomarbeit) at Transinsight. The title was “Retrieval of Drosophila Embryo Images from Scientific Publications Using Image Analysis”. The thesis was supervised by Dr. Michael R. Alvers, and Professor in charge was Prof. Dr. Michael Schroeder. Congratulations from the Transinsight team for an outstanding achievement!
The best performances in the gene normalization task all came from Germany: Jörg Hakenberg (Technical University, Dresden) […] Hakenberg’s system used synonyms and contextual information to associate gene identifiers with mentions in text. The other groups used large-scale synonym lexicons coupled with string matching techniques.
Dipl. Inf. Hendrik Strobelt receives the Lohrmann-Medal 2006 for a good master thesis and high social commitment during his studies in Informatics. Hendrik carried out his master thesis (Diplomarbeit) at Transinsight. The work titled “An Image Retrieval System for Biomedical Literature Using Text Mining and Ontologies” was supervised by Dr. L. Barrio-Alvers and Prof. Dr. Michael Schroeder.
“GoPubMed is ingenious”
“Scientists need a solution to literature navigation not a learning curve. GoPubMed makes it simpler to find papers that I want to read.”
”GoPubMed from Transinsight has inspired us because its interface really stands out from the multitude of scientific information systems. For us it’s the perfect example of combining complex searches with a first class, easy-to-use interface."
"This is one of the best ways I’ve seen to wade through the sometimes massive results of a PubMed search."
”I love this search engine. Iteration is simple, effective and dynamic. From the 3 million plus authors and the 15 million plus articles within PubMed this engine gives the most time-effective result return"
”Well done on GoPubMed. It has brought the PubMed interface into the 21st century! ”
"20.000 visiteurs uniques par jour bénéficient du projet de navigateur intelligent..."
“GoPubMed is mostly self-explanatory: I suggest people just wander over and try it out.”
“Searching in GoPubMed provides more options for sorting to the searcher than PubMed.”
"Transinsight wins German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology award"
"Gopubmed contains a huge knowledge base of information and top terms. This search engine won a 2009 design award for the “best of the best” semantic filters."
"GeneCloud developer Transinsight was also awarded the German Innovation Prize IT for its “outstanding developments in Enterprise Semantic Intelligence at CeBIT 2011."
“Another tool I found fascinating to try out is GoPubMed which identifies leaders in a field. In GoPubMed insert your favorite topic in the “Find” box on the homepage and, once you have those results click on “Statistics” to see a summary description of topic, top authors, institutions, journals, and in vogue years for that topic.”
