Sentieo users are now able to try the beta release of our brand new Document Search user interface (UI). While it may seem familiar, the UI has been rebuilt using modern tech such as React. This new build enables significantly less memory consumption and greater responsiveness across the board. Plus, we’ve extended Sentieo’s sentiment and natural language processing capabilities to include a host of new AI-powered features detailed here.
With Sentieo’s new, ML-driven transcript Smart Summary, we enable analysts to pick up the important information across multiple classifications, such as guidance and KPIs.
To trigger Smart Summary, users can simply click the “brain” icon on any transcript. To learn more about Smart Summary, read this post.
Our data science team has built an algorithm to identify key terms and topics for all companies within our database. Similar to a Google search, when a user starts typing inside of the query box, Sentieo will automatically populate suggested terms for you based on actual terms used by the company. This makes it much easier to find exactly the keywords you are looking for. Autocomplete intelligently populates based on which tickers and watchlists you have selected in the ticker box.
We are very excited to announce a giant leap forward for our Synonyms system. We have been using an NLP + machine learning-based algorithm for the last couple years to help us internally define and expand our deep synonym library. We are now very excited to open up that system to Sentieo users with our new Suggested Synonyms feature.
Using Suggested Synonyms, Sentieo is able to parse your query and automatically suggest possible synonyms to expand your search. While all of these synonyms may not be pertinent to your search, the function lets you quickly decide which you would like to add to your search. Just click the suggested synonym and it will automatically be added to your search query:
General Document Search Improvements
The Sources Selector
When we looked at usage analytics, we realized that the Document Type filter was the most used filter by a large margin. To make this filter more accessible and easier to use, we’ve made it a part of the main search interface. Additionally, we have renamed the filter to “Sources” to more accurately represent the functionality.
We have also added a quick “only” selector to the right of each source that lets users quickly focus on a single source.
Additionally, click the > icon at the far right to load up the more granular filters:
All additional filtering is now available with the Filter Button:
Configure and Control Your Results Pane
We’ve added the ability for users to easily resize the results panel. Simply drag the divider or use the maximize/minimize button. As you expand, the application will automatically switch to a table view when enough space is present.
While in the table view, you can also control what columns are visible. Currently, the list of options is limited but the Sentieo team will be adding to this over the coming months.
For smaller screens, we’ve also added the option to toggle between split pane and results-only views.
If you run a search with a ticker but without a query, the Sentieo initial results page shows you all company documents, as well as a company summary and share price performance. We have taken some key metrics and links out of our EDT Summary and provided them within Document Search. Additionally, users can see a historical stock price graph in the company summary.
Improved Document Viewer
We’ve made serious upgrades to our Document Viewer as well. You will notice faster load times for documents across the board. Additionally, we have relocated the highlights and the index panel to the right of the document.
We have also relocated the Redlining function to the top right of the document viewer.
