Data processing in the PROFIT platform, namely such tasks as data access, search, topic analysis, sentiment analysis, recommendations and preference extraction are based on a module, which extracts knowledge objects (concepts) from the contents of the platform. At the heart of this extracting tool is a thesaurus, which is holding the domain-specific knowledge as a network of related concepts. PROFIT’s knowledge graph describes entities, names, objects, actors and their interrelation and so sets the ground for analyzing and annotating the textual resources and further processing of textual data (sentiment, analysis, topic and trend analysis, recommendations, etc.).
