Webinar: Text Mining Panel Discussion - September 14

Come to our text mining panel discussion on September 14 from 6 - 6.30 PM UTC+2 (Berlin)
Bring your text analytics questions and join our expert KNIME panel discussion today onText Mining with KNIME Analytics Platform! Our panelists have been teaching courses and presenting webinars on this topic in recent months, and now it is your turn to chime in. If you have a question you’ve always wanted to ask, your brain is bursting with new ideas about NLP, or you just want to provide some feedback on the KNIME Text Processing extension - take advantage of this time to do so! Here’s a few examples of the types of questions we’ll cover:

  • What are the most common text mining use cases?
  • Do you have examples for grabbing data from pdf and docx files?
  • What are some of the common preprocessing nodes used in KNIME Text Processing?
  • How do I interpret topics I obtain from a topic extraction algorithm?
  • Stemming vs Lemmatization: which should I use?

During this 90 minute panel, we’ll be accepting questions and topic suggestions from the audience. You can also send us your questions in advance - there’s an opportunity to do that when you register through zoom. Even if you don’t have questions of your own, please feel free to come listen to the discussion!
