Intelligent Wizard for Human Language Interaction in Business Intelligence

  • Morten Middelfart
Part of the Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing book series (LNBIP, volume 172)


This chapter presents a novel extension to TARGIT’s patented meta-morphing called “The Intelligent Wizard”. Firstly, we compare the currently patent-pending Intelligent Wizard to prior art. Secondly, we present the Intelligent Wizard as implemented in a real-world industrial Business Intelligence (BI) application. Finally, we demonstrate by concrete examples that the Intelligent Wizard allows a user to navigate a real-world data warehouse using only human language and knowledge of business terms, thus significantly simplifying the generation of analytics and reports.
