A recent survey was undertaken of a large organisation that has been using the Natural Language Processing / Machine Learning Python algorithm OpportunityFinder for the past 12 months.
They have been applying the algorithm to millions of documents to extract knowledge and ideas.
Compared to their existing traditional search engines they estimated:
1. The algorithm has reduced the time they spend searching for technical information by over 50%.
2. The algorithm has increased the chance they will discover new knowledge they would not have found otherwise (using traditional search engines) by 75%.
