Another Tony Russell-Rose post that I ran across over the weekend:
Here’s something I’ve been meaning to share for a while: the slides for a talk entitled “Text Analytics: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow”, co-authored with colleagues Vladimir Zelevinsky and Michael Ferretti. In this we outline some of the key challenges in text analytics, describe some of Endeca’s current research in this area, examine the current state of the text analytics market and explore some of the prospects for the future.
I was amused to read on slide 40:
Solutions still not standardized
Users differ in their views of the world of texts, solutions, data, formats, data structures, and analysis.
Anyone offering a “standardized” solution is selling their view of the world.
As a user/potential customer, I am rather attached to my view of the world. You?
