Functional Questions:

How are topics and words identified by Eaagle Online ?

Eaagle Online selects the most relevant words, both common and rare, and groups them into topics according to three core guidelines:

  1. Identify each word’s occurrence and weight, counting the number of times it appears across all verbatim
  2. Determine each word’s proximity with regards to all other words
  3. Compute an optimal keywords list to reveal primary, and secondary themes as well as weak signals.
Eaagle Online regards a word as series of characters bordered by spaces, without referring to pre-existing semantic dictionaries. 
 
In order to remove non-significant items, Eaagle Online processes verbatim with a proprietary “lemmatizer” that reduces words to their base form (i.e.: reduce plurals to singular). 
 
Eaagle Online also removes stop words (e.g. ‘of’, ‘at’, ‘no’, ‘not’, ‘on’, etc.). Proper nouns are not shown by default; they can be identified, however, if the appropriate option has been selected in the Settings.
 
Once individual words have been identified, Eaagle Online analyzes words by groups and determines the most relevant groups among all verbatim to reveal themes. Eaagle Online also identifies the most relevant verbatim for each groups.
 
Note: The default word count selection for analysis is set at 100 words.  This default value is not a limit set in calculation, only in presentation. Users can set preferences to any word count limit.
 

What languages are supported?

All Latin-based languages can be analyzed, including English, German, French, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese. 

Eaagle Online does not currently support Asian languages, Greek, Arabic or Russian.
 

How are plurals handled?

To prevent redundancies, Eaagle On Line automatically groups together plurals and singulars.

How are conjugated verbs handled?

To prevent redundancies, Eaagle On Line automatically groups conjugated into their infinitive.

How are proper nouns handled?

Proper nouns are not showing by default. Yet they can be identified, if the appropriate option section has been selected in Preferences.

What are the scientific concepts underying Eaagle Technology?

Eaagle Online is based on Eaagle SDK. 

An underlying principle of Eaagle mathematics is that the true wealth of information is found in the links between words and expressions, and not in semantic pre classification.
 
Eaagle Online radically differs from semantic approaches. Topics are identified based on proprietary algorithms that differentiate Eaagle Online from traditional semantics-based text mining systems:
  • No lexicons nor predefined dictionaries/categories are required; neither prep nor ontological maintenance are required. ‘Semantic bias’ is removed from the analysis.
  • Weaker signals become visible
  • Unexpected relations appear spontaneously to reveal undetected, potentially vital pieces of information

What qualitative sorting possibilities are in Eaagle Online ?

Qualitative sorting is easy in Eaagle Online. 

Topics and words can be easily compared and sorted according to structured criteria using drop down lists, i.e. age, location, gender, etc.
 
In order to activate this functionality, you need to determine a "Main Property" when uploading your data.
  
Once Eaagle Online has processed your data, you are able to see/sort results according to your main property, as well as compare those results to all verbatim.
 
In the download section, Eaagle Online will automatically prepare a breakdown of results according to the main property.
