Antelope (Advanced Natural Language Object-oriented Processing Environement) is a Natural Language Processing framework developed by Proxem during years of R&D.
Antelope is based on the recognition that, although there were many NLP (Natural Language Processing) tools available, none actually offered all the features needed on a unique framework; one had to move from a project to another, sometimes on poorly mastered environments. Hence the specific nature of Antelope, imagined and developed as a comprehensive platform for NLP, with a modular structure allowing new elements.
While developing Antelope, Proxem became part of the French WordNet project, WordNet being the Princeton University lexical database. Antelope is based on a Microsoft .NET architecture, and has been tested on Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit x86 mode), and partially tested under Linux (through Mono).
The 2009 edition of Antelope is free for education and still available for download, for academic and non commercial purpose only. Software is available as is, without support nor guarantee of any kind.
