Performing at Your Best: Turning Words into Numbers and Numbers into Data-Driven Insights with Minitab, Python and Text Mining


In this follow-up to our webinar introducing Minitab's new Python integration module we show how to perform text analytics with Minitab and Python. Text mining is useful when analyzing customer comments, call center transcriptions, doctor reports or any other free-form text that contains information you want to extract. 

Minitab Senior Advisory Data Scientist, Mikhail Golovnya,  shows the basic steps from collecting summary statistics like Inverse Document Frequency (IDF) and cleaning text to more advanced concepts such as bag of words and sentiment values. He also provides fully functional Python scripts and sample data sets so you can try it on your own. (60 min)
