Profiler Plus is developed by Social Science Automation, Inc. in partnership with Ravenbrook, Ltd. This technology and subsequent software was borne out of research and application for various government agencies. After ten years of development and support for government, Profiler Plus is now also being used to support broader applications in the areas of media analysis, campaign and election media evaluation, athlete achievement, profiling, and forensic psycholinguistics.

Profiler Plus is implemented in Common Lisp and, in contrast to most statistically-based NLP systems, Profiler Plus is entirely rule-based providing fine grained control and complete process transparency. Profiler Plus performs text analytics in a highly flexible, multiple pass process. Results are then interpreted by our expert analysts and/or imported into such data analysis programs as Microsoft Excel, SPSS and SAS.
