2011-07-02

Viva Las Vegas! And if I’m “viva-ing” Las Vegas, I’d stay at the luxurious Bellagio. So why, when comparing the Bellagio to the like of Bally’s on TripAdvisor, did Bally’s have a higher score? It seems mind-boggling to me and made Lexalytics, who generated TripAdvisor’s online review scores, scratch there collective heads as well. In the Forbes article “Text Analytics Show Why Bellagio Underperforms Bally’s” Lexalytics went beyond the score and analyzed the actual text of the reviews to get some answers.

The Semantic Web Gets Down to Business

2011-02-22

Semantic technologies can “make search engines better or more precise in finding relevant content,” says Moulton.
