Learn which text analytics methods are available today and when & how (not) to use them

Pulling the marketing curtains aside on AI powered text analytics:

In a first phase you will discover what kind of text analytics methods are available nowadays (sentiment analysis, entity extraction, categorization etc.) and where they can be applied in MR. The different techniques will be put to the test interactively by you and other delegates, followed by a group discussion.

The second part delivers some background on the different classes of AI software (Library, API, User facing), the effort required to implement them as well as methods for integrating them into existing software landscapes. We also discuss how to evaluate the quality of the offerings and how to compare solutions. A quick glimpse on the inner workings of AI software rounds of this block.

In the final part you will get the chance to dive into the analysis of a dataset of your choice (actual project of yours or a toy-dataset): Using our platform which combines AI with human supervision, you will experience how we see the future of professional AI products: A collaboration of software, responsible for the repetitive part, and humans, being required for making sense of it all.
