Text analytics, a key component of artificial intelligence (AI), involves the application of computational techniques to process, analyze, and derive insights from textual data. It encompasses a range of tasks aimed at extracting meaningful information from unstructured text sources, such as documents, emails, social media posts, and more. Text analytics leverages natural language processing (NLP) methods to understand the language’s nuances, structures, and context, enabling AI systems to interpret and organize textual information for various purposes.


Text analytics encompasses multiple levels of analysis, including sentiment analysis, which determines the emotional tone of the text, and entity recognition, which identifies and categorizes specific named entities like people, places, or organizations. Text classification is another common task within text analytics, involving categorizing text into predefined classes or topics. Summarization techniques aim to condense lengthy texts into concise, informative summaries. Moreover, text analytics has applications in information retrieval, content recommendation, and even machine translation, where it aids in bridging language barriers.


By automating the extraction of insights from textual data, text analytics significantly improves the efficiency of information processing and decision-making. It enables businesses to gain actionable insights from customer feedback, assists in legal document review, and supports various research endeavors.
