Scopes and Internals
The WAND Legal Taxonomy includes 745 terms, with 136 synonyms, and is designed to help law firms, or legal departments within companies, organize legal documents and concepts including case matters, area of law, legal document types, and more.
Customization and Extension
The WAND Legal Taxonomy can be easily customized by personalizing the thesaurus with complementary lexicons. It can also be exploited in combination with the TEMIS Smart Taxonomy Facilitator (STF) Skill Cartridge® Framework to create a Skill Cartridge® focused on legal topics.
STF adds two distinctive features to the thesaurus-based extraction :
- Fuzzy Term Matching that produces and recognizes variants of thesaurus terms, minimizing silence and increasing recall
- Relevance Scoring, that evaluates the contextual relevance of each recognized term, discarding the less relevant ones improving precision. Relevance Scoring exploits a range of heuristics, including statistics and part-of-speech tagging.
Adjusting STF Fuzzy-Term Matching and Relevance Scoring parameters or retraining the Skill Cartridge®'s statistical models to adapt to a corpus that is specifically representative of your content will enable you to adjust semantic enrichment behavior.
The WAND Legal Taxonomy is ideal for law firms and legal departments seeking to create enterprise taxonomy as it can dramatically speed up their time to deployment.
