Statistics Café: Text Mining

Getting useful information from mountains of text

Spam filters, analyzing Twitter feeds, finding patterns in ancient documents… Text Mining is the process of obtaining meaningful information from text. It involves deriving patterns and trends, e.g. by means of statistical learning and other practices. In our next Statistics Café several scientists will tell you all about their applications of text mining!
