Transcript of "Using Sentiment Analysis in Pharma and Biotech"

  2. 2. Understanding about how people feel about their treatment and disease is critical • PR tools give a big picture from media hits, but are less useful for more granular analysis. • Current buzz metric tools are useful for relative market share of noise, but not for deep analysis. • Traditional qualitative market research has limitations in human analysis. • Quantitative analysis for market segmentation is expensive and usually based on physician rather than patient sentiments. • Rise of science, patient bloggers and social media as an important mediums for evaluating sentiments means we need new and better tools.
  3. 3. What is the basis of our approach? • The underlying philosophy of the Leximancer system is that meaning must be emergent from text and therefore not biased by external pre- definition. • This has resulted in a methodology involving identification of a Thesaurus of supporting defining terms being 'bootstrapped' to an original emergent seed-word, to form a Concept entity. • It is a fully-automated discovery process using the original text corpus.
  4. 4. Analysis can be from private recorded interviews or public information on internet
