Complete the model configuration by either creating a taxonomy in Prediction Studio, or by importing a file with an existing taxonomy. For more information, see Creating a taxonomy for keyword-based topic detection or Importing a taxonomy for keyword-based topic detection.

  • Creating keyword-based topic detection models

    Efficiently connect your customers with the right consultant without having to provide training data to the topic detection model. Instead, you can use a list of topic-specific keywords to train the model.

  • 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.

  • Analyzing natural language

    Effortlessly analyze and extract meaningful information from large volumes of text with the use of text analytics. Based on your findings, you can further improve business performance and customer experience.
