Processing e-mails: Kwaga

Participants : Laurence Danlos, Benoît Sagot, Frédéric Meunier, Vanessa Combet.

Kwaga is an online service available for different webmails and email clients via an asynchronous plugin. Its aim is to enrich (and not to replace) existing email applications, helping users to decide which emails they should read and in which order, and providing additional features related to emails such as incoming email categorization, priority level assignment and automatic calendar events creation based on the content of the email, and others.

Such a service necessarily relies on NLP tools and techniques. In its first version, Kwaga uses the Unitex tool, developed at the University of Marne-la-Vallée. The Sx Pipe procesing chain, developed at Alpage, is another option that has several comparative advantages: it has been decided to grant Sx Pipe a stability and technical characteristics that are suitable for industrial use, and to have Kwaga benefit from this technology.

To achieve this goal, an ARITT contract was signed between Alpage and the Kwaga company, that develops and distributes this service, with objectives and results that benefit to both sides:
