Yantzu develops text analytics system
Yantzu has developed its own text analytics system, which can be used to automatically assign news to a certain department. The system scans each incoming text for specific signal words, and then determines the news category where it is going to be placed. The basis for this is a dictionary with more than 60,000 words that have been assigned to a specific category. Thus, the system distinguishes between unimportant and important words and assigns the news to a specific department by means of detected signal words.
Detection of news threads
In addition, Yantzu immediately compares incoming news with the stories already stored in the system. Finding matches, the system assumes that it is highly likely to be news on the same topic and devaluates the older story in this news thread. Outdated texts disappear automatically from the news pool. As a result the user receives his desired news mixture and he is also informed about the latest news on a specific topic.
Speech-to-Text module planned
In the future, all incoming audio files will be processed according to this method. Yantzu will integrate a speech-to-text module, which converts audio file formats such as mp3 or wav into written texts. In combination with the text analytics system, all incoming audio files
can also be categorized. Not only will this enable the allocation of audio messages in the Yantzu news Player. It will also make it easier to find audio files in search engines and to share them in social media.
