Antidote is 25 years old!

The French and English writing assistance software, Antidote, is celebrating its 25th anniversary (psst! It is the same age as the École branchée!). More than 100 new features which will automatically be added to the relevant functions of Antidote Web and Antidote Mobile are planned for the occasion.

An online event is also scheduled for October 19 at noon Montreal time (6 p.m. in France) to survey the 25-year history of the software and to present the main new content and interface.

Here's one to whet your appetite. Antidote now uses the magic of deep learning: a new neural correction engine detects missing words and missing commas, and inserts them where they are needed. "This is a new fundamental technology which is called to play a major role in the progress of Antidote", already announces Druide informatique, the creator of the software.

To participate, go to www.antidote.info/25ans October 19. No registration is required.
