Analyzing collections with Salience Five

Monday, July 25th, 2011

This is a bit of a forward-looking blog post about new features that we’re debuting in Salience Five. At our Lexalytics User Group meeting in New York in April, we introduced the “collections” functionality that will be provided in Salience Five. Salience Five is in beta right now, so I decided to put together a worked example of collection functionality using some customer review data for Bally’s in Las Vegas gathered from a public website.

Read on to see how you’ll be able to use collections to analyze a group of documents as a cohesive set, extract the commonly occurring themes (with rollup using our concept matrix), and other pieces of actionable data we’re calling facets.
