A topic encapsulates a business level intent detected within interactions. Key phrases represent business level intents, and they can be a call reason (for example, cancellation), an agent skill (for example, upsell attempt), or an indication of a customer’s dissatisfaction (for example, escalation). 

The recognition engine locates and tags key phrases for easy data search and mining.
