Gavagai is a Swedish computational linguistics company. Using Random Indexing for distributional semantics, their AI technology can build a lexicon from text in many languages without supervision. Based on this technology, Gavagi offers various tools for opinion analysis, market research, and exploring themes in customer feedback.

In this webinar, Jussi presents the design decisions and principles behind Random Indexing, as well as diving into what kind of information can be extracted from text with this technique.

Random Indexing is a well-known technique in Natural Language Understanding and can be used to extract word lists or other lexical resources that can be fed into classifiers or deep learning models.
