Go Deeper:

Build Smarter Solutions

Text Analytics is a platform technology that adds depth and intelligence to any organization’s ability to utilize that most under-utilized resource – text. For many years the exponential growth of information has been experienced as a problem – information overload. However, with a new generation of text analytics tools and techniques, massive amounts of information are becoming part of the solution for an incredibly wide range of applications, from search that works to social media-fueled insights about customers and competitors to new flexible approaches to KM, new solutions to fake news, and more.

The inaugural theme for Text Analytics Forum, Go Deeper, invites all who deal with text to take a deep dive into this powerful set of techniques. The Forum has something for all: whether you are new to the field and want to understand how it can add new capabilities or you are an experienced text analyst and want to see what the latest techniques and tools can add to your repertoire.

The Text Analytics Forum is designed to be a place for sharing ideas from how to get started to how to make the business case to the latest development best practices to use cases showcasing the cutting edge of myriad applications. We will have workshops, roundtables, and an Ask the Expert panel where you can ask four leading experts anything you want.
