Detecting the topics of text fragments
Efficiently categorize and rout customer inquiries to the corresponding customer service consultant with topic detection. Topic detection scans a piece of text and determines the underlying topic, and then automatically assigns the text to a predefined category.
For example, when a customer writes My phone is not working, need help! in a chat window, topic detection analyzes and assigns the sentence to thecategory. Your application then connects the customer with the corresponding customer service consultant.
