Dublin, 19th October 2015 AYLIEN, a Text and Image Analysis company has announced the availability of a Text Analysis extension for the RapidMiner advanced analytics platform.

Available from 19th of October in the RapidMiner Marketplace, “Text Analysis by AYLIEN” will bring the smarts of Natural language Processing, Artificial Intelligence, and Text analysis to the RapidMiner platform.

Through a plug and play style integration, the Text Analysis by AYLIEN extension will provide effortless Natural Language Processing capabilities to the RapidMiner community of data scientists, researchers and analysts.

With this extension, RapidMiner users will have the capabilities to leverage unstructured data sources like Tweets, social comments, reviews and even news articles and blogs in their data analytic projects with great ease and with no prior domain expertise necessary.

In much the same way that RapidMiner has brought predictive analytics and machine learning to the masses, services like AYLIEN have given access to everyday analysts to advanced scientific techniques in NLP and Text Analytics. Analyzing unstructured data such as text has always been a challenge for data scientists and analysts, with Text Analytics and NLP being something only practiced by computational linguists and Artificial Intelligence experts.

The “Text Analysis by AYLIEN” Extension brings, a package of NLP and Machine Learning Operators to RapidMiner. These Operators can be used to analyze and understand unstructured data at scale. Their features include Sentiment Analysis, Text Categorization and the ability to Extract entities from text (keywords, names, places, organizations, monetary values, percentage values etc.)

Parsa Ghaffari, founder of AYLIEN spoke of why they built this Extension and his excitement about the launch; “We’re avid users of RapidMiner, and what you can achieve by a few simple drag and drops in RapidMiner is phenomenal. While you can stack the building blocks to build almost any Data Mining or Machine Learning pipeline in RapidMiner, for the majority of users it’s often quite difficult to achieve enterprise-grade performance with more complex tasks such as Sentiment Analysis and Entity Extraction, and that’s why we’ve built this Extension.”

Announced at RapidMiner Wisdom, the annual RapidMiner conference, at the beginning of September, there has been great hype and anticipation to see what the Extension will do to change how RapidMiner users wrangle with unstructured datasets in their advanced analytics projects.

By mining textual data organizations and researchers can power state of the art prediction and automation use cases like Topic and Trend Analysis across the web, Social listening for brands across social media and Customer service management.
