An automated method for allowing multiple users to independently analyze a corpus of digital information having discrete elements by providing two or more users access to one or more initial training source of digital information, allowing the users to each define a set of categories, automatically generating a group of digital features associated with at least two of the discrete elements, automatically associating a subset of the discrete elements with at least one of the categories, and automatically determining at least one combination of features and transformed features that identifies at least one of the categories. The automated method allows said two or more users to have the capability to perform the step of defining a set of categories, such that the automated steps of generating a group of digital features, associating a subset of said discrete elements, and determining at least one combination of features and transformed features is in whole or in part determined by the manual input to the automated method.
