Text Mining Workshop

Text mining, also referred to as text data mining, roughly equivalent to text analytics, is the process of deriving high-quality information from text. Text mining usually involves the process of structuring the input text, deriving patterns within the structured data, and finally evaluation and interpretation of the output. Typical text mining tasks include text categorization, text clustering, concept/entity extraction, production of granular taxonomies, sentiment analysis, document summarization, and entity relation modeling.
