Who We Are:
Babelscape is a Sapienza startup company founded in 2016 focused on
multilingual Natural Language Processing with the main goal of enabling
multilinguality and text understanding in customers’ applications which deal
with text in different ways. Thanks to technological transfer from the
internationally renowned Natural Language Processing research group headed by
prof. Roberto Navigli at the Sapienza University of Rome, winner of two
European Research Council grants and of several international awards, we place
ourselves on the market with very high professional profiles and the ability
to tailor our solutions to the customers' needs.

The company's core mission is to overcome the language barriers by enabling
the automatic processing of text independently of the input language, and
distilling and aggregating the information extracted across languages by means
of a unified large-scale multilingual knowledge repository and
semantically-enhanced text comprehension systems.
