I recently had the pleasure to speak about text analytics in front of the International Association of Software Architects in New York.

I believe that unstructured text represents the biggest problem and opportunity in Big Data, yet both are poorly understood by many consumers of text analytics.

In my presentation I tried to shed some lights on the challenges facing text analytics, with most of the examples from sentiment analysis (as this is the easiest application to understand).

For those who were unable to attend, here is the presentation, sans my dynamic presence, of course :-)
