UNDERSTAND YOUR DATA
How Text Mining with PoolParty drives your Semantic AI
Andreas Blumauer, CEO Semantic Web Company

Enterprise data is mostly unstructured and follows a siloed logic, which leaves little opportunity for meaningful metadata to occur. As a result, what would be an otherwise treasure trove of data, can hardly be used for automation or deeper text analytics, nor can it be networked with more highly structured data in the enterprise. On top of all these headaches, search applications in most enterprises are still far more rudimentary than what we are used to from internet search engines like Google.
Why is this and can it be done better?
The quality of automated natural language processing (NLP) and intelligent document processing (IDP) depends largely on what the underlying algorithms know about the domain in question. So machine learning based on training data that also does not contain this knowledge, is not effective. Instead, the solution is to combine machine learning with knowledge graphs.
What our brains have been doing for millennia, what Google has been pioneering since 2012, is now entering the reality of the business world: semantic AI — the combination of symbolic and statistical AI.
What is semantic AI, and what does it have to do with text mining?
Semantic AI has always focused on being able to infer and classify the meaning of large content sets in a largely automated way. Only when a machine is able to reliably annotate and disambiguate the meaning of a text in an explainable way, can it be used for further automation, including in business-critical processes and decision making. Furthermore, this is to be based on the principles of explainable AI (XAI).
Semantic AI can do all that: it helps complement black-box AI with explainability and takes your AI platform to the next level. Semantic AI no longer just analyzes the surface of your data, it understands the meaning behind it.
How can you use PoolParty to benefit from semantic AI?
PoolParty Semantic Suite is a software platform that can:
- analyze, classify, annotate and cross-link your unstructured data.
- use unstructured data in a performant, accurate, reliable, and secure way;
- in various multilingual environments and in almost any knowledge domain.
This 21st century key technology has been developed by semantic web pioneers over the last 15 years and is being used by major global organizations.
In this on-demand webinar, learn more about the many use cases of Semantic AI and how they can be implemented using the PoolParty Semantic Suite.
