Metavana Mix: Social Complexity, SparkScore Simplicity

by · July 20, 2012

Metavana is a new-on-the-scene semantic-analysis vendor whose core science invokes a supposed universal descriptive pattern, the Maximum Information Principle. MIP, Metavana explains, describes the distribution of galaxy sizes and, as exploited by Metavana’s software, the distribution of multi-term, natural-language “n-plets.”

Interesting, but there’s plenty of computational-linguistics and semantic-science mojo in a host of established, competing text and sentiment analysis offerings, developed by smart people. The real question is this one: Does MIP make for great “solutions that measure customer satisfaction,” capable of “taming the chaos of the social Web”?
