Saffron is a research framework for the extraction of knowledge from text with applications in expert finding, community detection, recommender systems, and enterprise search. Saffron analysis is fully automatic and is based on text mining and linked data principles. Saffron algorithms include: key-phrase extraction, entity linking, taxonomy extraction, expertise mining, and data visualization.

The expert finding and community detection application of Saffron provides insights in a research community or organization by analyzing its main topics of investigation and the experts associated with these topics. The current version of Saffron analyzes research communities in Natural Language Processing, Information Retrieval, and Semantic Web. The expert finding and community detection application of Saffron is also used in the analysis of a large data set of documents on the 2007-2008 financial crisis.
