Creating text predictions

Predict business events and customer behavior by creating predictions that analyze the text that comes through your channels, such as email or chat, to predict the topic or sentiment of the text.

The system creates a text prediction automatically for each new email or Pega Intelligent Virtual Assistant (IVA) channel that you add in App Studio. A link to the text prediction is available in the channel configuration. For more information, see Creating an Email channel and Creating a channel.

You can also create a text prediction manually in Prediction Studio, and then add the text prediction to a conversational channel. To create a text prediction in Prediction Studio, perform the following steps:

  1. In the navigation pane of Prediction Studio, click Predictions.

  2. In the header of the Predictions work area, click New.

  3. In the Create a prediction window, select Text analytics, and then click Next.

  4. In the Prediction name field, enter a name to identify the prediction.

  5. In the Subject field, specify the subject of your prediction by selecting one of the following options:

    • Email
    • Chat

    The Branch and Ruleset fields are populated based on your selection of class. You can choose a different branch and ruleset in the respective fields.
