MeaningCloud Release: VoC vertical pack upgrade

In the latest MeaningCloud update, we have published a new upgrade for our Voice of the Customer vertical pack. This update has two significant changes:

  • We’ve added a new domain to the four we already supported: telecommunications. This domain is huge and has a huge amount of unstructured data available and ready to be analyzed. You can check out the categories for this new model in the documentation.
  • We’ve refactored the models we already provided. Most of this refactorization has been done under-the-hood, but there are some categories that have changed names, either to give a more intuitive idea of what they refer to or to narrow down the criteria.

Updated version of the IAB model in the Deep Categorization API

IAB - Interactive Advertising Bureau

The Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) is perhaps the most influential organization in the online advertising business and, currently, brings together more than 650 leading companies in the industry that control 86% of the U.S. market. With a strong presence in the rest of the industrialized world as well, today IAB has become a standard for content classification, especially in fields with strong ties to the digital economy and new social media.

In fact, IAB promotes advertising techniques like behavioral targeting, which allows advertisers to direct marketing campaigns to specific users (according to their age, place of residence, political views, interests, etc.) and thus increase their effectiveness. What’s more, the organization is making consistent progress in the field of geotargeting, an area of digital marketing that is on the rise thanks to the unprecedented diffusion of mobile devices connected to the Internet and the latest advances in Internet-of-things technologies.

MeaningCloud Release: new add-ins for Excel

In the last MeaningCloud release we presented our new Deep Categorization API, a new Premium API that gives us access to two of our new vertical packs: Voice of the Customer and Voice of the Employee.

We also know that many of the target users of these functionality may not be necessarily know how to code, so with that in mind, in this latest release we are publishing two new add-ins, one for each vertical pack:

Both add-ins provide an integration with the Deep Categorization API, but focus on giving a more user-friendly approach for the analysis each one of them provides.

MeaningCloud release

The add-ins are adapted so anyone can obtain the analysis they want with just a few clicks, without worrying about API parameters or leaving the environment where they have the data to analyze.

This release also contains minor security updates as well as bug fixes in our core engines.

If you have any questions or just want to talk to us, we are always available at support@meaningcloud.com!


MeaningCloud Release: new Deep Categorization API

This is what we’ve included in MeaningCloud’s latest release:

  • New Deep Categorization API: we are happy to present the first of our Premium APIs, Deep Categorization 1.0, which lets you carry out an in-depth categorization of your data. In this initial release, we’ve included predefined models for analyzing the Voice of the Customer in several domains and the Voice of the Employee.
  • Language Identification 1.1: we say goodbye to Language Identification 1.0, so if you are still using it, you will need to migrate to the newest version. If you are using it through the Excel add-in, we’ve done it for you, so you just have to update your Excel add-in to the latest version.
  • New language for Text Clustering: we’ve added Catalan to the languages supported in the Text Clustering API.
  • General usability improvements: mainly in the developer area of the website.

New release of MeaningCloud

We have just published a new release of MeaningCloud that affects Topics Extraction, Lemmatization, POS and Parsing, and Text Classification APIs. Although there are several new features in terms of new functionalities and parameters, the most important aspect of this release lies under the hood and essentially consists of a refactoring of the way in which concept-type topics are internally handled, much more in line with the use of other semantic resources. This lays the foundations for better performance and new features related to the extraction of this type of information. Sty tuned for great improvements in this area in future releases.

The other two great lines of this release are the enrichment of the morphosyntactic analysis with information extraction and sentiment analysis elements (which enable new and richer types of analyses that combine the text’s structure with topics and polarity) and a new predefined classification model.

Here are some details about the developments in the different APIs:

New insights in your contents with the new release of MeaningCloud

We have just published a new release of MeaningCloud with some new features that will change your way of doing text analytics. As a complement to the most common analytical techniques -which extract information or classify a text according to predefined dictionaries and categories- we have included unsupervised learning techniques that enable to explore a series of documents to discover and extract unexpected insights (subjects, relationships) from them.

In this new release of MeaningCloud we have published a Text Clustering API that allows to discover the implicit structure and the meaningful subjects embedded in the contents of your documents, social conversations, etc. This API takes a set of texts and distributes them in groups (clusters) according to the similarity between the contents of each document. The aim is to include in each cluster documents that are very similar to each other and, at the same time, highly different from the ones included in other clusters.

Clustering is a technology traditionally used in the analysis of structured data. What is so special about our API is that its pipelines are optimized for analyzing unstructured text.

Monitor corporate reputation with our new API

Do you need to understand the impact that social media and news have on your corporate reputation (or your customers’)? Now, a new MeaningCloud API enables you to analyze all that information in real time and structure it according to the dimensions of the most common reputational schemes.

Some customers have been demanding us a precise way of understanding the impact that opinions from social media and other channels have on a company.

Corporate Reputation APISocial monitoring tools provide a basic sentiment analysis that in the best of cases identifies that a certain comment (e.g. a tweet) expresses a positive or negative opinion about an entity, and use the aggregated data in diagrams and temporal evolutions. Nevertheless, analyzing a so multifaceted reality as the reputation of a company requires a more granular opinion analysis.

Although it is usually identified with online reputation, corporate reputation is a different concept: it consists of an aggregate of the opinions and perceptions that the public has about a certain company. And it’s a multidimensional characteristic, since those opinions are assessed around a series of more or less standard axes:  Financial situation, Product quality, Innovation, Strategy…

A more social, real-time reputation analysis

So far, corporate reputation has been measured by interviewing and conducting surveys to customers and analysts, and it has been provided in the form of static periodic reports. But the number of customers who are not satisfied with a “snapshot” a posteriori -based on a few opinions- is constantly increasing. Now they wish to add to the picture the impact that social and traditional media have on their reputation, and access that information in a more up-to-date and actionable way to detect potential reputational crises well in advance.

With this MeaningCloud update we have added a new Corporate Reputation API, which enables to include in the reputational analysis the huge amount of spontaneous opinions expressed in all kinds of media (social networks, forums, blogs, news websites) in real time.

New corporate reputation API

This API performs a reputational tagging of text: it receives a document (tweet, piece of news, comment in a survey), detects the mentioned companies, identifies the reputational dimensions involved and extracts the polarity that affects each one of them. All this with a high level of accuracy and granularity, distinguishing opinions about different companies than can coexist in a single sentence. The result is presented in the form of standard tags that can be used to aggregate, relate, detect trends, generate alerts, etc.

Under the hood, the corporate reputation API uses a highly optimized pipeline that incorporates information extraction, automatic classification and polarity analysis techniques. In addition, it is based on standard interfaces and features SDKs that enable to integrate it into any available monitoring application or tool. More information here.

Using this API you can complement the traditional reputational studies with a more agile and immediate analysis of the impact of social media, news, etc., and thus manage more dynamically such an important asset of your company.

And don’t forget that with this MeaningCloud update we include two APIs from our previous product, Textalytics: Linguistic Analysis and Text Proofreading.
