GovText is a comprehensive Natural Language Processing (NLP)-based text analytics platform with an intuitive user interface. Developed by GovTech’s Data Science and Artificial Intelligence Division (DSAID), the platform aims to help public officers analyse their textual data efficiently.
GovText uses NLP techniques to automatically analyse unstructured text data and produce results that can help users better understand the contents. GovText is designed to be dataset-centric, and the same dataset can be used for multiple analyses. Users just need to upload their datasets first, before using GovText for analysis.
GovText is offered as a web portal tool and as a model-hosting platform.
The GovText Web Portal service was first launched for public officers in May 2021. Hosted on the Government on Commercial Cloud (GCC), the GovText Web Portal service currently has two text analytics tools that public officers can use:

Besides providing text analytics tools in the web portal, GovText also serves as a model-hosting platform that also provides text analytics services via APIs for government agencies

The platform develops and hosts a variety of customised AI models for improving the efficiency and operation of customer service and feedback management.
