November Update

🎁 New Features

Sentiment analysis in Graphext just became much more powerful with our new enrichment -integrated with an industry-leading model from Cardiff NLP - hosted by Hugging Face.

We've also added detailed documentation about our analysis types on our website and in the app!

01. New Enrichment: Sentiment Analysis Integration with Cardiff NLP & Hugging Face

Our new sentiment analysis enrichment is built using an industry-leading model from the team at Cardiff NLP and hosted by Hugging Face. Sentiment analysis models predict whether text is positivenegative or neutral. Check out the documentation describing the mechanics of the model here.

Choose this enrichment using the Data Enrichment tab in your project setup wizard to start classifying the sentiment of news headlines, song lyrics, tweets and more text of all shapes and sizes.

How can I start using it?

  • Open up a dataset that contains a text variable.
  • Choose any type of analysis to perform.
  • Inside your Data Enrichment tab, choose Analyze Text Sentiment - Cardiff NLP.
  • Select the text variable you want to analyze the sentiment of.
  • Complete your project setup.
  • Once Graphext has built your project, open it up and explore your new Category of Sentiment (Cardiff NLP) variable.

02. Analysis Type Documentation

We've started adding documentation to help you make the most of our analysis types. You can find these in the app using the information icon inside the card for each analysis type or in the docs on our website.

We've written this to help you understand the best way to approach each of our analysis types. Expect walkthroughs, use case examples and exact directions on getting started.

How can I start using it?

  • Choose a dataset to work with.
  • Click on one of the information icons inside of your project setup wizard.
  • Click the link at the bottom of the documentation to read more.

Working with datasets that have lots of columns can be tricky at the best of times. Now you can find variables instantly using our search facility across data tables in Graphext.

In the Datasets panel of your Graphext workspace, use the search bar to find a variable. Inside Details use the search bar at the top of your right sidebar.

How can I start using it?

  • Open up a dataset in your Graphext workspace.
  • Search for a variable using the search facility.
  • Now open up a project and navigate to the Details panel.
  • Search for a variable using the search bar at the top of your right sidebar.
  • Notice how Graphext instantly scrolls to reveal the variable that you are looking for.
