R&D

“Our researchers bring the future into our present”

Education and technology are the two areas that are permanently evolving. To be in contact with everything that is new and to integrate modern tools into our products and solutions, we rely on experienced researchers who are constantly working, for over 20 years, in the Research and Development department.

Behavioral Biomerty

The researches in the domain of biometry performed by SOFTWIN are targeted towards the design, execution and implementation of a person authentication and identification system, based on the biometric characteristics of the holograph signature, obtained through a special device designed by SOFTWIN.

The system supports the settlement of one of the most critical security problems, namely the efficient and non-intrusive authentication of the individuals. The biometric systems are largely used for the authentication and identification of the individuals; wide range national and international projects are currently being developed on this theme.

The main research objectives are the following:

  • Design and implementation of shape recognition algorithms;
  • The execution of several IT authentication/identification systems, (an integrated hardware-software system consisting of: data collection device, data collection software driver and authentication/identification algorithms);
  • Performing tests for medium-large lots of subjects, in order to determine the accuracy level of the authentication/identification process performed by the system.

Natural Language Processing

The research activities regarding the processing of natural language within SOFTWIN are targeted towards the achievement of a set of information, tools, resources, framework systems and monolingual/multilingual applications, supporting the solution for the following problems:

  • promoting the linguistic diversity in the information society;
  • learning the language;
  • improving the production volume in a multilingual and multicultural environment;
  • consolidating the linguistic infrastructure and developing the digital content on the market.

The central language in this multilingual framework is Romanian, which shall allow the consolidation of the bidirectional communication between the Romanian language and the other (European) languages.

The main SOFTWIN research objectives in this domain are the following:

  • Defining the processes and structures which may be used as a base for the monolingual/multilingual knowledge resources;
  • Creating NLP tools (Natural Language Processing) grouped in a framework allowing the creation, maintenance and usage of the multilingual knowledge resources
  • Creating knowledge, tools and specification bases which could be used to produce multilingual applications and resources for the Romanian language, and to assure the correspondence between Romanian and other (European) languages.

Our results were rewarded with the Gold Medal at the Geneva 2010 International Invention Salon and the Silver Medal at the INNOVA International Technology Innovation Fair in Brussels.
