In this module, we will discuss the concept of named entity recognition (NER), which is a text-mining technique used to identify and classify named entities, such as people, organizations, locations, and dates, mentioned in a piece of text data. The module explains the importance of NER in natural language processing (NLP) and various industries, including marketing. This module also explains the importance of text classification in analyzing large volumes of text data and its applications in sentiment analysis, spam detection, and customer segmentation. This module describes two other techniques, i.e., topic clusterings and Bayes Nets, that can be used to analyze and make sense of unstructured data. Topic clustering involves grouping similar pieces of text data together based on their shared topics or themes, whereas Bayes Nets is a unique group of techniques with potent predictive abilities that employ graphical analytical approaches to categorize relationships between variables.
