In today’s data-driven world, businesses are constantly looking for ways to extract meaningful insights from their data. However, a significant portion of enterprise data is unstructured, making it difficult to analyze and organize. To help businesses unlock the potential of their unstructured data, Hyperscience has released a new feature: Text Classification.

With this release, Hyperscience is enabling businesses to make impactful changes to their business processes that will ultimately help their customers.

What is Text Classification?

Text Classification helps businesses train models to classify unstructured data in documents, emails, and more. Once the data has been classified, Text Classification allows users to analyze the data by user intent, sentiment, topic, or any custom labels based on their own business rules.

For example, you can use the Text Classification feature to:

  • Classify the medical disorders listed in a patient intake form
  • Determine the sentiment expressed in a customer comment and apply a label to it (e.g., “positive,” “negative”).
  • Categorize and prioritize emails by customer intent (e.g., inquiries, complaints, requests to change account information).

How Does Text Classification Work?

With Text Classification, Hyperscience provides a workflow block that you can use to classify the text extracted from a specific field, document, or email.

  1. Increased Accuracy: Text Classification can accurately categorize and extract data from unstructured documents, reducing errors and improving data quality.
  2. Time-savings: Text Classification can automate the sorting and routing of documents, allowing employees to focus on higher-value tasks that require human intervention.
  3. Improved Efficiency: By automating document classification, businesses can increase processing speed, reduce manual intervention, and improve overall workflow efficiency.
  4. Enhanced Compliance: By accurately categorizing and extracting data, Text Classification can help ensure compliance with regulatory requirements and internal policies.
