Thesaurus projects

In the context of knowledge management, a thesaurus is a type of controlled vocabulary somewhere between a taxonomy and an ontology.
The nodes of the hierarchy correspond to concepts, each represented by a set of synonyms, but with respect to a taxonomy, in a thesaurus it is possible to define relations between concepts regardless of their position in the hierarchy.

A ML model generated with a thesaurus project recognizes the expressions of concepts in a text and has a dual use: extracting those expressions and determining whether or not a text is about the knowledge domain modeled by the thesaurus.

In this section you will find the how-to guides to learn how to create and manage thesaurus projects with Platform.
