Lexalytics User Group: Sue Feldman on Big Data and Text Analytics

  1 m, 2 s

Here’s the fifth video taken from our LUG conference.

Sue Feldman discusses the impact of big data on the world around us. She does it by defining what “big data” is, as well as what are the different hardware and software bits that make up big data. She goes on to cover what are some of the problems that can only be solved with a “big data” mindset, and how text analytics fits into big data alongside more traditional structured data efforts.

Specifically, she explains how new technologies such as Lexalytics’s Salience engine can be used to make sense of Big Data, as well as how sentiment analysis can be used to leverage Big Data to our advantage, especially with regards to categories, taxonomies, named entity recognition, lists and trends.
