Big Data Meetup: Hands-on with Text Analytics - Extracting business value from Text
Join us on Tuesday, September 24th at 6:00pm in Foster City. This Meetup will be a presentation, demo and hands-on lab.
As enterprises seek to gain operational efficiencies and competitive advantage through greater use of analytics, much of the new information they need to analyze is found in text documents and, increasingly, in a wide variety of social media sites and portals. A critical step in gaining insights from this information is extracting core data from huge volumes of text. That data is then available for downstream analytic, mining and machine learning tools. AQL (Annotator Query Language) is a powerful declarative, rule-based language for the extraction of information from text documents.
