Notes from the Second Annual Text Analytics (formerly Text Mining) Summit

Thursday morning at the Text Analytics Summit featured, among other things, one excellent panel, a couple of lively and interesting presentations, and the usual tedious discussion of “What do we call this technology area anyway?” Lots of airtime went to industry stars such as Olivier Jouve (SPSS), Todd Wakefield (Attensity), Ramana Rao (Inxight), and Mary Crissey (SAS).
