  1. Reporting a major bug in Azure cognitive-services/text-analytics

    I was using the text analysis service API by Azure & found many major flaws : (The API is not mature enough to handle simple real life sentences correctly).
    https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/cognitive-services/text-analytics/?v=18.05
    Below are few sample sentences which I used & the result was absolutely wrong.

    1. I have many ways to not give you the expected grades
    2. There are many ways to not give you the desired grade
    3. How could you not understand what I said
    4. We have attempted to launch your course in a new window, but a popup blocker is preventing from opening it -> this…

  3. I would like to see a better semantic understanding of Dutch language constructs

    I pushed this phrase to the api:

    "Aangezien ik niet meer werk ben ik op zoek naar mensen in mijn omgeving om doordeweeks dingen mee te ondernemen, nieuwe input te ervaren. "

    English: Since I am no longer working, I am looking for people in my area to do stuff with, to experience new input.

    The returned key phrases include:
    - "meer werk"

    This is wrong, because the wordt 'niet' clearly indicates that the subject has stopped working, while the API suggests 'more work'

    I'm trying to map the meaning of text to a domain ontology I created, in which…

  4. What is the definition of transaction in Text Analytics API

    After several calls to Text Analytics API, I noticed that the amount of transactions > the amount of calls. So how is transaction defined?

  5. Intermittently unavailable

    For the past two months, when I have tried to call the APIs, I have not been able to access the resource. When I check the resource health in Azure, it's unavailable. This happened with the text analytics service in both of our Azure accounts. Last month this seems to have resolved on it's own and we never heard back from Azure about our support request. I tend to go in to run a bunch of transactions in the final days before our monthly allotment resets, and this really throws a wrench in that!

  7. Classify the type of entities (people, location, business, dates)

    I enjoyed testing the text analytics API, however I noticed that while the service detects entities, it doesn't appear to classify them. For example, I would expect the service to identify a person from a business or street name. Similarly, can it detect an address such as 123 Elm Street, City, State, Zip. I anticipate that this would be a valuable add-on.

  8. Add Linguistic Analysis features (part of speech tagging, tokenizing, etc)

    Add features to Text Analytics to identify the concepts and actions in your text with part-of-speech tagging, and find phrases and concepts using natural language parsers and tokenizers.

  9. Add Wikidata Entity Linking References

    The entity linking feature should include or at least allow the option of Wikidata references. Wikidata will allow for much more programmable context vs Wikipedia.

    So for example, if the entity "Seattle" was found, we should have a reference to this link from wikidata. "https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q5083" which has a ton of contextual data for programmers to access. Such as this is a city, in the state of WA as well as who the mayor is, etc, etc...

  11. Lang detection score needs guidance and probably enhancement

    The lang detection API provides a score. The only details are that 1.0 indicates the highest level of confidence, and that a lower score will be returned in mixed language situations. Here are a couple of cases which don't seem to agree:

    The example in the docs, leaving the english and spanish, but removing the french, is still mixed:

    Hello, I would like to take a class at your University. ¿Se ofrecen clases en español? Es mi primera lengua y más fácil para escribir.

    --> returns Spanish, score 1

    Hey, that's life. C'est la vie!

    --> returns French, score 1

    For example the keywords "Intramolecular", "ionic", "covalent", "intermolecular" are not currently recognized.

    Extract entities from text. example return a Jira task number "TES-10" usually they have a set of rules (ProjectKey-Number) but currently Text analytics is not able to recognize the full entity (returns ProjectKey only).

  19. Text analysis - Provide rewards and a way for users to provide feedback to service response so that it can learn(Machine Learning).

    While testing the sentences, it would be great to have users feedback whether the sentence and analysis makes sense or they feel the result has some issue.

    Get survey details such as emotion, positive and negative scale, keywords and all
