Speaker: William (Bill) Inmon
Topic: Text Analytics, Machine Learning (ML) & AI
- What’s the relationship between the three areas?
Perhaps touch lightly on some of the following subjects as the time permits
- Sources of text – where does the text come from
- Textual ETL dynamics – processing text
- Taxonomies – the “brains” of text analytics
- Sentiment analysis – what are people saying
- Exploring text – non sentiment
1. Isn’t this what ML does as well?
2. How can we better test our outcomes for validity and increasing our confidence in the results?
