Here’s something cool…

Zemanta analyzes user-generated content (e.g. a blog post) using natural language processing and semantic search technology to suggest pictures, tags and links to related articles.

Zemanta suggests content from Wikipedia, Youtube, IMDB, Amazon.com, Crunchbase, Flickr, ITIS, Musicbrainz, Mybloglog, Myspace, NCBI, Rottentomatoes, Twitter, Facebook, Snooth and Wikinvest, as well as the blogs of other Zemanta users.

Zemanta’s understanding of the content (e.g. whether “Apple” refers to a fruit or a company) can be embedded into the content using Common Tag for semantic tagging.

Originally released for use by bloggers, Zemanta is available as a Firefox and Internet Explorer extension and plugins for WordPress, Blogger, TypePad, Ning, MySpace, LiveJournal, MovableType, Tumblr, Drupal and Joomla. It is now also available for use with web-based email systems like Gmail and Yahoo mail[2], and an Microsoft Outlook add-in is in development.

Zemanta is server based software, so the server does all the hard work and the plugins simply communicate with the server to retrieve suggestions.

Other companies have used Zemanta’s API to add content suggestion to their products, for example hover.in, Triond, RetailFans, Bukisa and Faviki.

Zemanta used to be based in part on TextGarden content analysis software from Slovenia’s Jožef Stefan Institute national research institute
