Auto categorization; it’s more than text analytics

On: April 08, 2016, by: Ann Kelly

Auto-categorization is usually described as one of the basic text analytics capabilities. This is unfortunate because the underlying functionality can be used for much more than simply categorizing the subject of a document. The name probably stuck because a lot of text analytics companies only offered categorization using training sets. With that approach, auto-categorization is all you can do. However, once you add in categorization rules like Smartlogic’s Semaphore (either sets of terms or full categorization syntax), you can use them for a broad range of other tasks.

The ROI of Content Intelligence and Semantics

On: December 11, 2015, by: Ann Kelly

I once had a boss who said “We don’t know what we don’t know.” At the time I thought it was an odd statement but over the years I’ve come to see exactly what he meant and to understand just how important “knowing” is to an organization.

Learning with the Fonz

On: November 16, 2015, by: Ann Kelly

A few weeks ago we had a new addition in the Holland household. His name is Arthur Herbert Fonzarelli but we call him “Fonzie” for short. Now Fonzie is a Briard puppy and he joins four other dogs in our increasingly busy kitchen. As you can imagine with so many dogs, in the interests of the structural integrity of our house, proper training is important. So we’ve started teaching Fonzie the basics – sit, stand, down and stay. For the uninitiated, the Briard is a French sheepdog (if you’re old enough to remember the Looney Tunes cartoons, think Sam Sheepdog), so he gets sit, down and stay with relatively little effort. However, when it comes to stand, it’s proving to be something of a challenge.

If you’ve ever been involved in building an ontology it’s likely you’ve come away from the process with a few battle scars. Projects to develop a common vocabulary in an organization are time consuming and political because it’s difficult to get everyone to agree on a single consistent term for each concept. And while we all agree it’s good to have a consistent language, pointing to a specific business benefit that makes your CFO smile is hard.

The inference problem needs a triple solution

On: September 03, 2015, by: Ann Kelly

A triple is a relationship construct that consists of 3 parts; a subject, a predicate and an object. In semantics, triples are an atomic form of intelligence that can be used to describe basically everything in the world around us. In our everyday world we think of subjects and objects as nouns and predicates as a way to express the relationship between subjects and objects.
