Creating keyword-based topic models


Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

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

The topic model then scans the customer message in search of the specified keywords, and uses the results to assign the message to a corresponding topic, for example, Action > User Support.

Keyword-based topic detection acts as a substitute for, or supplement to, machine learning topic detection. For more information about the differences between topic model types, see Comparing keyword-based and machine learning topic detection.

To create a keyword-based topic model, perform the following procedures:

  • Setting up a keyword-based topic model

    Create a keyword-based topic model by specifying the model name, language, and corresponding ruleset. After you create the model, complete the model configuration by defining a taxonomy of topics and keywords.

  • Creating a taxonomy for keyword-based topic detection

    After you create a topic model, define the topics that you want to detect in a piece of text. For each topic, add a list of keywords that define the topic. Based on these keywords, topic detection then assigns topics to an analyzed piece of text.

  • Importing a taxonomy for keyword-based topic detection

    After you create a topic model, import a taxonomy that contains defined topics and keywords for topic detection. Based on the keywords, topic detection assigns topics to the analyzed piece of text.
