«The ZKB Histar team loved working with Swiss Data Labs – in a highly productive, innovative, and enjoyable way!»
Raphaela Ziegler, Head of Infocenter, ZKB

THE CHALLENGE

  • The Infocenter Team at ZKB is the primary point of contact for historical research in the bank
  • The archive contains records and publications from almost 150 years of banking history
  • An analytical full-text search is required, which shows text passages, enables automatic highlighting and displays relevant metadata

OUR SOLUTION

  • Extraction of relevant information by Text Mining and Machine Learning
  • User-friendly search mask for easy full-text search
  • Relevant text areas are automatically highlighted in color for quick screening
  • Creation of interactive word clouds reflecting related content using data mining

ADDED VALUE

  • Text research, sorting and triage can be carried out substantially faster and automatically
  • Hits are displayed directly in the context of the surrounding text position
  • Word Clouds help to discover new relationships and develop a storyline
