Applied Enterprise Semantic Mining

Please RSVP on if you plan to eat food.



Text mining is projected to dominate data mining, and the reasons are evident: we have more text available than numeric data. Microsoft introduced a new technology to SQL Server 2012 called Semantic Search. This session's detailed description and demos give you important information for the enterprise implementation of Tag Index and Document Similarity Index. The demos include a web-based Silverlight application, and content documents from Wikipedia. We'll also look at strategy tips for how to best leverage the new semantic technology with existing Microsoft data mining.

    Too bad we didn't have enough time to see the rest of the presentation...

      Eric -- we did substantially cover all the material -- yes, I would have liked to take some of the material in more depth -- maybe I need to make a one-day in-person talk on text mining, what do you think?

    I won't be able to attend. I look forward to next months meeting. Is there anyone who may have time to help me in learning the SQL fundamentals? I am taking SQL 2008 R2 but struggling a bit. I just don't want to fall behind in this class. I know I am making it harder than it is. (Not that it is easy by far) but I need to pass this class. Please help! Thanks.

      Elaine - there is an enormous amount of introductory material on the Internet - take a look at the Stairway series at http://www.sqlserverc...­ as a starting point. For SQL, as opposed to BI, you can also engage with AtlantaMDF (, which is the local PASS chapter - we have a Google Group (which you do have to register for, but it's free) which is very responsive to questions at all levels.

      Thank you so much Eric. I think both sites will be a big help, especially the videos on the Stairway site.
