  1. Language detection for random text returns "English" with a score of 1.0 instead of "unknown"

    According to the documentation at https://westus.dev.cognitive.microsoft.com/docs/services/TextAnalytics.V2.0/operations/56f30ceeeda5650db055a3c7
    submitting random text like ":) :( :D" should return a result of "(Unknown)" with a score of 0, instead it returns "English" with a score of 1.

    This is pretty bad.

  3. Multi Language Text Analysis

    Work with local people to provide support for local language, or exclusive partner to develop multi language text analytics API. I am looking for a hybrid approach where there is no need to translate but can detect language on real-time by having prioritisation of language used, even if the language used are mixed (max mixture of 2 languages in a sentence/dialogue)

  4. Re-train the key phrases

    It would be helpful if we allow user to white list the words by saying "good" or "bad" ( feedback) after key phrase extraction and feed responses back to the system to learn(ML).

  5. Can we expect the "Custom KeyPhrase extraction" API?

    Can we expect the "Custom KeyPhrase extraction" API from Azure like "Custom Vision" API in some time in near future?

  6. Support stock market tickers

    Support basic level of stock market tickers. If I were to analyze, "$SPY will be up five points by end of week" the API believes it is film related. Relate "up five points" as a positive sentiment in relation to "$SPY" or any other ticker.

    Thanks,

  10. Hints for key phrases to improve extraction on small texts

    As mentioned in the guides, Key phrase extraction works best when you give it bigger chunks of text to work on. This means that the same text results in different sets of key phrases when it is part of a larger dataset and when it is submitted as a single record.

    It would be helpful, if we have the option of also including a set of key phrases (or as mentioned in other idea submissions - custom keywords or vocabulary) so that the results are better and consistent even when the API is dealing with small chunks of text.

  11. Make "language" parameter optional for Sentiment Analysis

    Make "language" parameter optional or add another option as "auto" and add detected language to the response. So I won't need to make two seperate API calls one for detecting the language than for sentiment analysis.

  13. Add synonym features to text analysis

    Add synonym functionality to improve usefulness of key phrase extraction. When trying to extract key themes from large amounts of text supplied from different authors (e.g. customer feedback), often they will use different words to describe the same theme. Right now it's hard to group words without understanding the relationship with synonyms.

  15. add our own words

    Requirement: Add our own words for key phrase identification.

    Background: I want to use text analytics for identification of key phrases from sentence entered by user for search.

            In order to provide more relevant search result I need to extract key phrases and pass it to our search services.
    

    Dilemma: My all users are from Engineering background and tries to search Engineering equipments or some tools/techniques either using exact keywords or short forms.

    I tried to use Text Analytics Demo for getting real-time results as expected, but no luck.
    Its failing to achieve such scenarios.

    Is there any provision where…

  16. 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 should be neutral text.

  18. 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?

  20. 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...
