Support industrial thesaurus creation with linguistics, statistics and world knowledge: the Luxid WebStudi

Rich, specific and up-to-date vocabularies and thesauri are an important building block for many approaches to the management and analysis of large amounts of textual data. Using thesauri document collections can be enriched with facets, search results can be more targeted and more complete, trends and factual knowledge can be inferred in a better way than on raw text.


But defining and maintaining a large thesaurus on a detailed domain can be a time-consuming and demanding task. Tasks like identifying new potential thesaurus terms or synonyms for these or already existing ones is often exclusively manual work where most existing platform provide little support.


Combining linguistic and statistical evidence with specific world knowledge, the Luxid WebStudio attempts to provide thesaurus managers with this kind of support, embedding the task for thesaurus creation and maintenance in a broad software environment where thesauri can be refined, tested and applied on textual content.


We motivate and introduce the platform and some of the underlying technologies and provide insight into some of the use cases the application has been used for in industry scenarios.
