Keynote – Text Analytics for Non-Experts

Tuesday Keynotes – Tuesday 7 November 
09:45 – 10:00

At past KMWorld/Taxonomy Bootcamp events, practitioners who are attempting to get started with auto- categorization projects have voiced a common set of frustrations. This talk explores text analytics and auto- categorization from a design and user-experience perspective. It outlines a manifesto for demystifying text analytics and for simplifying the process of auto-categorization. The manifesto is aimed at a constituency of content owners and taxonomists and hopes to help them take ownership of the categorization process so they can better control the search and discovery experience for their end users.

Keynote – Text Analytics for Non-Experts

Opening Keynotes: Tuesday – Tuesday 7 November 
09:45 – 10:00

Text analytics and auto-categorization tend to present themselves to the world as esoteric disciplines supported by complex expert systems. Users are immediately confronted by a jargon-wall built with terminology from computational linguistics, such as “tokenization,” “lemmatization,” and “NLP.” At past KMWorld/Taxonomy Bootcamp events, some practitioners who are attempting to get started with autocategorization projects have voiced a common set of frustrations. Categorizing content shouldn’t require an advanced degree in linguistics. Categorization rules should be simple and transparent. Rules development and taxonomy development should be coextensive rather than separate activities. Rules should be easy to edit, and it should be possible to understand quickly and precisely how changes to taxonomy and rules impact document categorization. This talk explores these issues from a design and user-experience perspective. It outlines a manifesto for demystifying text analytics and for simplifying the process of auto-categorization. The manifesto is aimed at a constituency of content owners and taxonomists and hopes to help them take ownership of the categorization process so they can better control the search and discovery experience for their end users.
