LEXIMANCER WHITE PAPER
Leximancer is text mining software that can be used to analyse the content of collections of textual documents and to visually display the extracted information in a browser. The information is displayed by means of a conceptual map that provides an overview of the material, representing the main concepts contained within the text and how they are related.
Leximancer uses deep learning to extract a three-level network model of meaning from the data. By default, Leximancer is fully data driven, or unsupervised, but the deep semantic model can be directed by the user to target key topics and relationships. This offers the combined benefits of deep learning and user control, without the need for laborious human tagging of the data or dictionary building. Read more
