W13 - Text Analytics [CANCELLED]

1:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Tom Reamy, Chief Knowledge Architect, KAPS Group, USA

Do your clients want to quickly understand text and documents and get the gist of the content? Text analytics (text mining, noun phrase extraction, auto-categorization, auto-summarization, and social media or sentiment analysis) is becoming essential to any field that utilizes or tries to understand unstructured text. To develop both practical applications and deeper research results requires the development of a text analytics platform that incorporates the integration of all of these techniques. The workshop, based on the recent book, takes attendees through the entire process of creating a text analytics platform including: basic analytics techniques from deep learning/machine learning to sophisticated rule building and how to integrate them using a modular approach; making the business case and what people and content resources are needed; an evaluation process to select the right text analytics software for your organization; a process for fact extraction with categorization and sentiment analysis to add depth and intelligence to all the components; and the range of applications that can be built with text analytics from advanced expertise applications to new uses of social media.
