Course Overview

Text Analytics is about converting unstructured to structured data and applying statistical and machine learning techniques to predict or uncover hidden patterns from the data. Advanced skills were needed earlier on to do text analytics because of the complex natural language processing, statistical models and programming involved. With recent advancements, the latest trending tools have incorporated built-in augmented analytics and automated machine learning algorithms. This means that business users can now DIY the entire text analytics project themselves.

 

This course covers the knowledge and best practices of text analytics. Several popular techniques such as text topics, text clustering and sentiment analysis will be introduced. Participants will learn to use a user-friendly, GUI-based process flow designing tool to automate the entire process of extracting, preparing and analyzing textual data.
