Uncover latent insights from all your content.
What is knowledge mining?
Knowledge mining is an emerging discipline in artificial intelligence (AI) that uses a combination of intelligent services to quickly learn from vast amounts of information. It allows organizations to deeply understand and easily explore information, uncover hidden insights, and find relationships and patterns at scale.
Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)
Ingest your content from Azure sources like Azure Blob storage, Azure Table storage, Azure SQL Database, and Azure Cosmos DB, as well as hundreds of third-party sources, via dedicated connectors.
Extract text-based content from file formats such as PDF, Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and CSV. See the full list of supported formats.
Work across different document types and formats, including images, audio files, forms, web pages, and Office documents, without the cost and complexity of building and managing individual AI services.
Enrich your understanding of the content with cognitive skills, such as image classification, face recognition, language detection, and key phrase extraction. These operations let you produce new fields in your search index that are not available natively in the source.
Integrate custom models or classifiers that can be built with any language or framework of your choice. Explore insights with pre-configured search, or through analytics tools and business applications.
Supplement with custom analyzers, invoke fuzzy search queries, add contextual search, or set weighted parameters for your unique scenario.
How knowledge mining works
By orchestrating various AI capabilities, knowledge mining delivers an enhanced experience that enables organizations to gain insights faster from content that would otherwise remain untapped. There are three phases to knowledge mining: ingest, enrich, and explore.

When organizations task employees to review and research of technical data, it can be tedious to read page after page of dense text. Knowledge mining helps employees quickly review these dense materials.
Developers could use knowledge mining to help attorneys quickly identify entities of importance from discovery documents and flag important ideas across documents.
In industries where bidding competition is fierce, or when the diagnosis of a problem must be quick or in near real-time, companies can use knowledge mining to avoid costly mistakes.
For many companies, customer support is costly and inefficient. Knowledge mining can help customer support teams quickly find the right answer for a customer inquiry or assess customer sentiment at scale.
Given the amount of unstructured data created daily, many companies are struggling to make use of or find information within their files. Knowledge mining through a search index makes it easy for end customers and employees to locate what they are looking for faster.
Many companies create products for multiple sectors, hence the business opportunities with different vendors and buyers increases exponentially. Knowledge mining can help organizations to scour thousands of pages of sources to create an accurate bid.
