Security organizations would like to analyze reports, in these reports officers often use partial person names (only last names for example). In SPSS Text Analytics there in an extraction option for "Group partial and full person names together", but it only works for the first names listed in the underlying language dictionaries, which are not exposed to the user.
This means that SPSS Text Analytics is not able to extract names (also full and partial) from countries outside the supported languages. The workaround soultion could be to list all the first and last names in a dictionary type, with matching criterion Start or End. Since there are loads of names that's not an option.
The perfect solution would be if we can add tokens to the list of first names that apparently exists inside the language files.
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||Every customer who would like to exract person names for different languages, and want to use the name grouping option.|
How should it work?
Allowing people to add tokens to the list of first names that apparently exists inside the language files. This will enable to extact person entites in custom languages and to use the partial name grouping for names not listed in the underlying dictionaries.
|Priority Justification||We have a customer who are running currenty an entity extraction project, in that "Group partial and full person names together" option would be very helpful. They are a security organization, they want to analyze reports, in these reports officers often use partial names (last names).|
