Publications describing Leximancer

Evaluation of Unsupervised Semantic Mapping of Natural Language with Leximancer Concept Mapping
The Leximancer system is a relatively new method for transforming lexical co-occurrence information from natural language into semantic patterns in an unsupervised manner. It employs two stages of co-occurrence information extraction --- semantic and relational, using a different algorithm for each stage. The algorithms used are statistical but they employ nonlinear dynamics and machine learning. This paper seeks to validate the output of Leximancer using a set of evaluation criteria taken from Content Analysis which are appropriate for Knowledge Discovery tasks. A. E. Smith and M. S.

Publications applying Leximancer

Rebuilding institutional legitimacy in post-conflict societies: An Asia pacific case study – Phase 1A
Kylie Fisk, Dr Adrian Cherney, A/P Matthew Hornsey, Dr Andrew Smith, The University of Queensland, 2009. Report on grant funded by AFOSR/AOARD (Award number FA2386-08-1-4094). This is a major piece of large scale qualitative research covering primary, academic, and governmental text sources (such as blogs, web sites, reports, and papers) from Nepal and East Timor. This work applies Group Identity Theory to the issue of rebuilding the legitimacy of a nation's government and justice systems. This work was only made feasible by using Leximancer 3 to support collaborative grounded analysis by a very small team in a short timeframe. PDF
