Title: SUPPORTING INTERACTIVE TEXT MINING PROCESS WITH NATURAL LANGUAGE DIALOG
Abstract:
A mechanism is provided in a data processing system comprising at least one processor and at least one memory, the at least one memory comprising instructions executed by the at least one processor to cause the at least one processor to implement a document analysis device for performing a statistical analysis of documents with respect to a facet. An acceptance module accepts a natural language sentence. An extraction module extracts a first facet from the natural language sentence. A statistical analysis module performs a first statistical analysis of a set of documents with respect to the first facet and determines a value of the first facet based on a result of the first statistical analysis responsive to information being extracted from the natural language sentence, the information requesting for a second statistical analysis. The statistical analysis module performs the second statistical analysis of the set of documents using the value of the first facet. A user interface presents a second facet determined based on a result of the second statistical analysis.
