Implementation using Saplo Text Analysis API

Saplo Tags is available through the text.tags method.

With Saplo Prediction we put our technology up to the biggest challenge we can possibly think of, predicting outcome given a specific dataset.

Sentiment

To automatically be able to determine whether a tweet, a Facebook post or a news article is positive or negative can prove valuable when measuring brand reputation, customer satisfaction or when predicting who will win the United States presidential election of 2012.

Sentiment from Saplo is available through our Text Analysis API using the text.predict method.

Other Concepts

Other than sentiment, Saplo can measures a wide variety of concepts across time, including environment, emotions, security, changes, etc. An example of this would be to measure how environmental friendly an organization is perceived. In many cases this ability to look at concepts other than sentiment is far more interesting.

Change

Measuring change is a particularly interesting feature. What we do is basically to track when the way something is described in is changing. Look at an organization like Apple, the way news articles are written about them differs a lot between year 2000 and 2010. Our way of early picking up on differences in text with Saplo Prediction could prove valuable in predicting trend changes. Another interesting example is to look at the change in stories leading up to the financial crisis of 2008.

Predictive Analytics

In its most advanced form Saplo Prediction can be used to predict future events. Using historical data - including text in a variety of formats - to make predictions about future trends we have showed that our Text Analytics technology can be a used as a valuable component in Predictive Analytics.
