Smart Content: Utilizing the Structure in Content

Submit Your Proposal

Deadline is May 4

We understand this is a difficult time for everyone due to the current health crisis and that you have many other things on your mind, however, our team is still working hard to provide the best ever events in November: KMWorld 2020 & its co-located events Taxonomy Boot Camp, Enterprise Search & Discovery, and Text Analytics Forum.

If you find you have a few minutes to think of messages, experiences, and expertise that you want to share, please do consider sending us a proposal to speak. We understand that you might not know what your organization has planned regarding travel in the fall, so we are happy to have a conditional response to participation now. We plan to confirm speakers in June (or perhaps earlier) as we will hopefully all have a better view of the future at that point. We appreciate your flexibility and look forward to receiving your proposal.

In our fourth year, Text Analytics Forum is seeking knowledgeable and creative people with exciting new approaches to share their ideas on all things textual. The Text Analytics Forum is a place for sharing ideas and experiences in text analytics from beginner to advanced developers. We cover all aspects and approaches to text analytics including machine learning and AI, semantic categorization rules, build your own to advanced development-testing platforms, and human-machine hybrid applications.

One of the best ways to build great applications is to use text analytics to capture and model the structure within so-called unstructured content. The reason it is so difficult to get good value from “unstructured” content is not the lack of structure, but rather having too many different kinds of structure. However, text analytics can capture, model, and utilize all the kinds of structure. These structures can range from clusters of co-occurring terms to formal and informal sections that contain critical content for understanding a document to data structures for extraction to advanced arguments or discussions between documents or tweets to sophisticated patterns of words that reveal insights about the writer’s sentiment or psychology.

Abandoning the under-performing Bags of Words approach, smart content means search that works, rich new sources of data for any analytical application, and finally, AI that overcomes its inherent bias. AI is only as smart as the content on which it is trained and text analytics, utilizing content structures, is the tool to create smarter training sets.

We want to hear about how you are using text analytics to create and utilize smart content and the applications you built on this foundation. What new ways are you making content smart? How you are using that smart content in new applications (or making old applications smarter)? What new kinds of applications are you developing? What new kinds of semantic structures have you been working with (knowledge graphs, ontologies, etc.)? What issues are you discovering and how did you overcome them?
