  • 2. Where we are
    Ken Jennings, IBM Watson, and Brad Rutter play Jeopardy!

  • 3. Miles to go
    http://www.businessweek.com/magazine/content/04_19/b3882029_mz072.htm
  • 4. Milestones [and goal(s)?]
    Language+ understanding.
    Text, speech, images, and video.
    Narrative, discourse, and argument.
    Information extraction.
    Knowledge structuring and integration.
    Inference; synthesis.
    Language generation.
    Conversation; interaction; autonomy.
    ≈> Convergence, a.k.a. Singularity
  • 5. Singularity?
    Before we reach that point…
  • 6. Text+ technologies today
    Text analytics, by generating semantics, bridges search and BI to turn Information Retrieval into Information Accessfor online, social & enterprise content.
    Information management
    Search
    BI
    Text Analytics
    Information access
    Integrated analytics
    Semantic search
  • 7. Applications today
    Broadly grouped --
    Intelligence and counter-terrorism.
    Life sciences.
    Content management, publishing & search.
    Customer & market intelligence.
    E-discovery.
    Enterprise feedback.
    Law enforcement.
    Risk, fraud, compliance, and investigation.
  • 8. Resegmenting the market
    Information Acquisition
    NLP (natural language processing) (including aaS)
    Information management & semantics
    Databases, repositories, content management systems • Information integration • Semantic Web
    Search-based/oriented applications
    E-discovery and compliance • Semantic search • Media & publishing • Advertising
    Enterprise applications
    Customer experience/relationship management and marketing including social • Market research and competitive Intelligence • BI and research • Online commerce • Life sciences • Intelligence
  • 9. Market size
    I estimate a global, 2010 text-analytics market of –
    $15 million ≈ Information acquisition (TA part)
    E.g., 80legs, Informatica, ISYS Search, Kapow Software, Oracle.
    $455 million ≈ NLP, semantics & text analytics
    Installed & as a service, including vendor professional services.
    $35 million ≈ Information management applications of TA
    Companies such as EMC, IBM, MarkLogic, Open Text, and Oracle.
    $30 million ≈ Enterprise applications of text analytics
    Typically OEM TA licensees, e.g., Radian6, SatMetrix, Vovici.
    $300 million ≈ Search-based applications (TA part)
    Companies such as Autonomy, Cataphora, Dow Jones/Factiva, Elsevier, Endeca, FirstRain, Google, IBM, Lixto, Thomson Reuters.
    = $835 million.
  • 10. Last year’s estimate
    I estimated a $425 million global TA market in 2009.
    • Up about 25% from $350 million in 2008, up in turn 40% from $250 million in 2007.
    Covers software licenses, vendor provided support and professional services.
    $(hundreds) million more value created by:
    Universities and research centers, especially in the life sciences.
    Government, particularly for intelligence & counter-terrorism.
    OEM licensees, for listening platforms, e-discovery, etc.
    Systems integrators and consultants.
  • 11. Text technology initiatives
    Now and near future.
    Semantic search.
    Sentiment analysis.
    Listening platforms.
    Question answering.
    Text visualization.
    Web 3.0 & the Semantic Web.
  • 12. Text technology initiatives, revisited
    But I used that list last year! Revising very slightly:
    Semantic search.
    Sentiment analysis.
    Lots of market confusion, including from some folks at TAS11.
    Listening platforms.
    Question answering.
    Text visualization.
    Web 3.0 & the Semantic Web.
    Ronen Feldman, Bar-Ilan University and Hebrew University: “Text analytics [is] driving the Semantic Web” (2006).
    Copious European government research funding, coupled with wishful thinking, is driving the Semantic Web.
  • 13. Text technology initiatives++
    Now and near future.
    Beyond-polarity sentiment analysis.
    Emotions, intent signals. etc.
    Entity/identity resolution & profile extraction.
    Online-social-enterprise data integration.
    Semantic data integration, Complex Data.
    Speech analytics.
    Discourse analysis.
    Because isolated messages are not conversations.
    • Rich-media content analytics.
    • 14. Augmented reality; new human-computer interfaces.
  • Where to?
  • 15. And Your Investment?
    Robust growth across applications.
    Technical innovation.
    New frontiers.
    Consolidation and emergence.
    Opportunity
    You have two days to learn more!
