Provalis Research Releases WordStat 2023

New enhanced topic modeling features and significantly faster performance

Provalis Research, a leader in text mining software, has just released the latest version of its text mining, content analysis software—WordStat 2023.

WordStat 2023, represents a significant step forward in the application of word sense disambiguation to topic models. Our unique topic enrichment feature has undergone major improvements, and we’ve introduced several new topic modeling capabilities to help users obtain even greater insights from their

data. In addition, we’ve implemented numerous speed optimizations that make the software more responsive and user-friendly.

Better Explore Automatically Generated Topics

A new integrated text retrieval feature can be activated to automatically display sentences or paragraphs that match the selected topic. These text segments are presented in descending order of relevance, with topic words displayed in bold, making it easy to understand the essence of each topic and identify key examples that can be used to illustrate it. This powerful tool provides users with a deeper understanding of their data and facilitates more effective communication of their findings.

The topic modeling feature also comes with a new word cloud panel to visually depicts the relative importance of the top words within the selected topic. This graphic representation can be customized, copied, or saved in standard graphic formats.

Better and Faster Topic Enrichment

The software’s unique topic enrichment feature has undergone major improvements, resulting in greater accuracy in identifying false positive expressions or exceptions, which can be incorporated into the topic model to help disambiguate words associated with contexts unrelated to the extracted topics. It also adds more relevant phrases to the extracted topics and offers improved suggestions for additional related phrases.

“After years of research dedicated to improving topic modeling techniques and results, we are thrilled to offer our customers our latest breakthrough. These new features will make WordStat 2023 an even more powerful tool for text mining and automatic topic extraction,” said Normand Péladeau, CEO of Provalis Research. “The superior interpretability, specificity and accuracy of the results will allow users to derive even greater insights from their unstructured text data.”
