Introduction to IBM SPSS Text Analytics (v18)

Instructors
David Cutajar BA (Hons)MSc
Duration
2 days
Course Level
LearnQuest / IBM Approved Certification
Requirements
General computer literacy. Prior completion of Introduction to IBM SPSS Modeler and Data Mining (v18) is recommended

This course teaches you how to analyze text data using IBM SPSS Modeler Text Analytics. You will be introduced to the complete set of steps involved in working with text data, from reading the text data to creating the final categories for additional analysis. After the final model has been created, there is an example of how to apply the model to perform churn analysis in telecommunications. Topics include how to automatically and manually create and modify categories, how to edit synonym, type, and exclude dictionaries, and how to perform Text Link Analysis and Cluster Analysis with text data. Also included are examples of how to create resource templates and Text Analysis packages to share work with other projects and other users. 

 

Who is it for?

This course is aimed at users of IBM SPSS Modeler responsible for building predictive models who want to leverage the full potential of classification models in IBM SPSS Modeler.
