We present the Focused Concept Miner (FCM) Command Line Interface (CLI), an exploratory tool which operationalizes an interpretable, deep learning-based text mining algorithm such that managers and researchers can accessibly analyze high-resolution unstructured data. This is specifically designed to be accessible for managers and researchers with or without a technical background. For more information about FCM CLI, please visit FCMiner.
In this guide, we provide a step-by-step guide on setup, features, implementation, and troubleshooting of FCM CLI. We also discuss a general approach to explore data and filter results to obtain meaningful insights using FCM's Grid Search and Visualize features.
Becoming comfortable with the features and processes we discuss in the guide will enable you to rapidly extract insights from unstructured data in a fraction of the time that involved, multi-step approaches require. We encourage you to experiment with creative applications to glean insights and develop novel hypotheses from rich unstructured data.
The guide notebook covers the following:
- Introduction & Caveats
- Commands & Features
- Closing Comments
