Expert.ai empowers organizations to transform data included in text into knowledge and insight through its deep understanding of complex language. The expert.ai Natural Language API provides a comprehensive set of natural language understanding capabilities to analyze text, including the ability to identify emotions and behavioral traits within documents, chat messages and emails as well as ascertain the overall sentiment of the text. 

Use your creativity to identify ways that you can leverage the natural language capabilities of the expert.ai NL API to solve business challenges with a deeper understanding of text. Here are a few sample use cases for how a business might leverage sentiment analysis, emotions and behavioral traits. 

Example Use Cases

  • Identify and track the traits that are associated with an individual over time, such as a political candidate. Are they viewed as smart, caring, or sophisticated?
  • Analyze short stories or essays by identifying the most prevalent behavioral traits associated with a character or person. 
  • Improve routing of customer support chat messages by analyzing the emotions of the text to understand if the customer is angry, satisfied, or confused. 
  • Monitor reactions on social media.

Learn more about the potential of NLP and test your development skills by building or updating a functioning application that extracts overall sentiment, emotions and/or behavioral traits from text.
