Re: [TaxoCoP] word/phrase extracting/sorting tools
- Heather -I'm just getting caught up on some mail folders, sorry for the delay! Have you looked at the tools available from SIL? <http://www.sil.org/computing/catalog/show_software_catalog.asp?by=all&name=>Best,Christine
On a related note, Calais has a Beta program (http://viewer.opencalais.com/) which allows you to input text and it will identify 'entities' present and categorize them according to a taxonomy. Check out the output in the left rail. This is intended to be a step towards the semantic Web. I've been playing with it a little bit trying to figure out if I can operationalize it here where we have a lot of unstructured text, in order to improve search, navigation, and help power related content.
