Megaputer Intelligence Inc. and MicroSystems Ltd. unveil TextAnalyst – a unique intelligent tool for automated semantic analysis, summarization, and navigation of texts written in natural language. The new solution received the highest grades from all pilot users of the system during the initial offering period. TextAnalyst performs a broad range of text mining tasks completely automatically:
- Semantic network development for a corpus of analyzed texts;
- Text abstracting;
- Knowledge base creation;
- Semantic search for information (with the creation of a sub-tree of concepts related to the concept mentioned in the query);
- Hierarchical topic structuring;
- Text indexing.
TextAnalyst utilizes an innovative neural network technology for a homogeneous processing of texts from arbitrary fields. In combination with other advanced text processing techniques this approach provides for the most efficient development of the semantic network of a text. The developed semantic network is used by TextAnalyst for a further multi-faceted analysis of texts.
Existing users of TextAnalyst include government offices, consulting and law firms, medical centers, scientific organizations, electronic book publishers, customer support centers, political institutions, and even college students.
“The software effortlessly permits us to undertake preliminary data reduction and analysis simultaneously without missing important information. The software is able to efficiently handle numerous and often large (90+ pages apiece) text files without any problem. Furthermore, the program is extremely user-friendly,” says Eleanor McLellan, Data Analyst at Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
“The software facilitates a drastic reduction in the time required by an analyst to grasp the meaning of a set of texts in any subject. In addition, the software furnishes many hints for a deeper comprehension of the whole text, as well as its separate fragments,” adds Peter Makogonov, Ph.D., Deputy Director, Administration of Mayor, Moscow.
“By introducing TextAnalyst Megaputer further expands its broad offering of comprehensive data analysis solutions and becomes a key player in one of the most dynamic segments of the information analysis market,” notes Sergei Arseniev, CEO of Megaputer. “Now large corporate customers with diverse data and text analysis needs can obtain a complete suite of best analytical solutions from a single vendor, making the integration of different applications simple. Megaputer’s PolyAnalyst solution for data mining and TextAnalyst solution for advanced text analysis go hand-in-hand to help users derive more value from information.”

TextAnalyst is a new intelligent text mining and semantic information search system. The system implements a unique neural network technology for structural processing of texts written in natural language. This technology simplifies the work with large volumes of textual information and can be effectively applied to automatically carry out the development of knowledge bases, creation of hypertext, searchable, and expert systems, and perform automated indexing, topic assigning, and abstracting of texts from various fields.
PolyAnalyst is a complete multi-strategy data mining solution utilizing the latest achievements in the automated knowledge discovery in databases. A broad selection of exploration engines allows the user to predict values of continuous variables, explicitly model complex phenomena, determine the most influential independent variables, and solve classification and clustering tasks. The ability of PolyAnalyst to present the discovered relations in explicit symbolic form has no world analogs. An object-oriented design, point-and-click GUI, versatile data manipulation, visualization, and reporting capabilities, minimum of statistics, and a simple interface to various data storage architectures make PolyAnalyst a very easy-to-use system.
