What we seem to forget when it comes to information analytics, natural language processing, search keywords, big data, social media and more is that all of these focus on organizing, understanding, and disseminating text. Text is the basis for most of the world’s information and Text Analytics Forum wants to reminds us of that at their next event to be held in Washington, D.C. on November 8-9, 2017. The purpose of the Text Analytics Forum is to stress the importance of the most underutilized resource: text, advances in knowledge management, and the technologies built to leverage it.
The forum will introduce text’s power to attendees:
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.
There will also be standard convention activities such as roundtables, keynote speakers, workshops, and ask the experts panel. Text is the basis for all NLP applications and understanding its importance as well as how to make it a more powerful tool is a winning strategy.
