View discoveries


When the processing status bar of a running analysis has reached 100%, the analysis is ready, and the user can open a visualization to view the concepts (and associations, if this option was selected) generated by Teneo Discovery.

There are three visualizations available, which can be reached through the Analysis toolbar: Mosaic view, Table view, and Pie chart view.

Visualization views

To open the analysis in any of the visualizations, first select the analysis to open and then click one of the buttons in the Analysis toolbar. Alternatively right-click the analysis and select the view from the context menu.

Double-clicking the analysis opens it in Mosaic view.

Note that it is possible to open the same analysis in up-to four different visualizations or to open up-to four different analyses in the visualization mode at the same time.

Visualization views

OOV view

Out of Vocabulary (OOV) words, typos and alphanumerics can be viewed in the special OOV-view, accessible from the analyses' toolbar.

OOV button

This view lists the out of vocabulary words (i.e. not in the current Teneo Lexical Resource for the given language), the alphanumerics and the typos.

For typos, the user can also see what the word has been corrected to.

Out of Vocabulary view

It is possible to upload a customized vocabulary list and then the words in this list will not be considered OOVs. This makes it possible to single out "new" words (not in the TLR nor in the vocabulary list) which might be needed in a project as Language Objects or Entities.

ConceptBurst view

The ConceptBurst view allows the user to see a concept and its relations. This view is available when right-clicking a concept or by long-pressing the concept.

There are three types of relations to view in the ConceptBurst:

  • The concept and its word forms (different surface forms, including typos, of the same concept)

ConceptBurst view

  • The concept and its children (concepts that originate from the same parent concept)

ConceptBurst view

  • The concept and its siblings (co-occurring concepts, i.e. concepts appearing in associations together).

ConceptBurst view

The user can swap between these levels by selecting the buttons in the top menu, highlighted in the below image.

Show Siblings Children or Wordform


Scrolling over any of the concepts shows a tooltip with some basic statistics as well as the word forms behind the concept:

  • POS tag
  • Score
  • Inputs
  • Complexity
  • Category (if any is assigned)
  • Sentiment (if applicable)
  • Entity annotation (if applicable, see Supported languages)
  • Word forms

Under Word forms, the tooltip highlights any Out of Vocabulary (OOV) word forms and typos, as well as alphanumeric forms.

Out of Vocabulary (OOV) words are words not present in the Teneo Lexical Resource (TLR) for that language and typos are words that the input processing step automatically have corrected.


Top toolbar

When an analysis is opened, above the analysis view, the top toolbar will become available offering various options for viewing and filtering discoveries.

Top toolbar

Concept and Association views

The user can either view concepts or associations (if created).

To switch between viewing concepts or viewing associations, simply click the icons to the very left of the top toolbar.

Concept view vs Association view

Paging tool

The menus and operations are similar for both views, and to remind the user of the current view, the paging tool in the upper left corner of an analysis also states whether the view is of concepts or associations.

Paging tool

Depending on the screen resolution and size, and on the purpose of the analysis, the user can adjust the maximum number of concepts or associations to view per page.

Paging tool options

It is possible to use the paging to see the next N most frequent items or go to the last page to see the least frequent items. Another way to navigate to the least frequent items, the smallest concepts, is by using the inputs filter.

Filter discoveries

The user can apply filters to navigate the data and the discoveries, combining the filters in any way needed.

Whenever applying a filter on an analysis, the numbers in the paging tool represent the number of items for the filtered selection (and not the total numbers of the analysis).

The user will, per default, see the N most frequent (or biggest items) matching the filter.

Filter options

Teneo Discovery offers the following filter options in the top toolbar (left to right):

  • Concepts/Associations view, see more above
  • ABC Standard text filter to filter for certain words or patterns in items
  • Regex filter for certain patterns in items (all items starting or ending in a specific way)
  • Part-of-Speech (POS) tag filter (e.g. all proper nouns) (if applicable, see Supported languages)
  • Complexity of items filter (e.g. the concept New York City is more complex than new)
  • Inputs filter filters on number of inputs of items (the size of an item)
  • Merged items filter (items the user or Discovery has merged)
    • Show only merged concepts
    • Show only non-merged concepts
    • Show all concepts
  • Hidden items filter (items the user has hidden)
  • OOV filter (words not in the Teneo Lexical Resource)
  • Show bookmarked/non-bookmarked items filter (items the user has bookmarked)
  • Sentiment filter (if applicable, see Supported languages)
  • Named Entity filter (if applicable, see Supported languages)

It is possible to combine the filters in different ways, for example, use the POS-tag filter and search for combinations such as verb and noun (vb nn) associations and with a minimum complexity of 3 words. Or filter for concepts/associations that contain a certain named entity type, etc.

A concept is considered belonging to a certain named entity type if a certain (adjustable) percentage of the inputs behind the concept contains a token/tokens annotated as that named entity type. Below image shows concepts considered being of the named entity type Sports.

Named Entity type Sports

To reset all filters applied in one go, use the Clear all filters button in the Visualizations toolbar.

Clear all filters

Open the Inputs view

To open the Inputs view (multi-use view), simply double-click any of the concepts or associations in the Visualization view.

Alternatively, click the Inputs button in the top of the window and select where to display the Inputs view (left side, right side, top area or bottom area).

Open the Inputs view

The inputs for the selected concept will be displayed in the selected area of the screen. Note that inputs will not be displayed until the user selects a concept.

View list of inputs

Available lists

Once the Inputs view is opened, the user has the option to click the Inputs dropdown menu available above the list to display other available lists (Stop words, Anti-stem words, Custom vocabulary words, Merging lists) or the Categories.

Available lists and Categories

To open, for example, the Stop words, simply select this option in the dropdown menu.

Navigate by Categories

The user can also navigate the analysis by its categories (if those are created).

The categories are accessible through the multi-use view / Inputs view by selecting this option in the dropdown menu.

Navigate to the Categories

Categories can be selected in the category view, but also via a dropdown menu in the upper right corner of an analysis.

Select category option
