Lexalytics Brings Enterprise-Level NLP and Sentiment Analysis to Social Media and Messaging Apps for Android

Apr 07, 2016


Lexalytics, a provider of cloud and on-premises text analytics solutions, announced that it is launching Salience for Android, a native text analytics package for a mobile operating system. With Salience for Android, application developers can now offer mobile users sophisticated natural language processing (NLP) and analytics to any app that uses text--email, SMS and chat, reviews, comparison shopping, social media, travel, hospitality, and more--to gain immediate insights and useful information to improve productivity and simplify day-to-day activities. By providing native text analytics, all processing stays local on the phone so analysis results never go back to the cloud, ensuring end-user privacy.

With Salience for Android, developers can quickly bring to market next-generation apps with functionality such as immediately alerting a user about an email or post that is especially negative and incendiary, or positive and praiseworthy; displaying a daily summary of emails from important contacts; providing a list of any to-do's throughout the day, week or month; summarizing the latest information in the sports world from a favorite team; removing politics-related content--or any content the user might want stricken from their social feed; highlight buzz-worthy events taking place in the upcoming weekend; warning users when they're about to send out a text they may regret later; and much more.

Salience for Android includes the following features to derive meaning and insights from text-based content:

?      Named Entity Extraction: Provides a list of who or what is being discussed

?      Summarization: Summarizes the most important parts of an email, news story or other text data, so the user can scan and quickly grasp the meaning

?      Imperative sentence extraction: Immediately indicates when the user is being asked to do something

?      Query-based categorization: Create search queries to easily categorize content into different buckets.
