Processing answers to open-ended questions in surveys: vera
Participant : Benoît Sagot.
vera is a joint project with a world-wide leader in the domain of employee research (opinion mining among the employees of a company or organization). The aim of vera is to provide an all-in-one environment for editing (i.e., normalizing the spelling and typography), understanding and classifying answers to open-ended questions, and relating them with closed-ended questions, so as to extract as much valuable information as possible from both types of questions. The editing part relies in part on Sx Pipe (see section 5.6 ) and Alexina morphological lexicons. Other parts of vera are not directly related to NLP, and therefore fall outside the scope of Alpage's work.
