Basis Technology Enhances Text Analytics for RapidMiner with the Rosette® Toolkit

Broad set of semantic services across twenty languages now available for leading predictive analytics platform.


CAMBRIDGE, Mass., June 1, 2016 — Basis Technology, the leader in multilingual text analytics, today announced their Partnership with RapidMiner, the industry’s #1 predictive analytics platform. This technology partnership brings together state of the art Rosette® text analytics toolkit to over 250,000 RapidMiner platform users worldwide.

Text analysis helps reveal patterns and relationships in large volumes of textual content that are not necessarily visible to human analysts. With RapidMiner, workflows can now be automated and the results from a text mining model can be repeated consistently to solve specific problems. Typical uses for text analysis include extracting entities, concepts, and relationships from large volumes of textual content, linking them to known entities for resolution, understand consumer sentiment, and search index optimization.

“Our partnership with Basis Technology adds powerful multilingual text analytics using advanced natural language processing to the RapidMiner platform, complimenting our existing statistical text analytics capabilities,” said Dr. Ingo Mierswa, Founder and Chief Technology Officer at RapidMiner. “We’re thrilled to see Basis Technology embrace the RapidMiner Community and our Marketplace.”

Historically, extracting valuable insights from large volumes of text required complex programming and modeling tasks performed by highly skilled developers. Today, the combination of advancements in cloud infrastructures, along with a fundamental shift in how organizations use analytics, has opened the way for tools such as RapidMiner to bring together text mining, text analysis and visualization capabilities.

“You can now analyze text quickly in a flexible and scalable environment without the need for advanced programming skills.” James Andrews, Basis Technology

The Rosette Text Toolkit extension can be installed from the RapidMiner Marketplace.
