Text Mining

Concept Briefing:

Text Mining, also "intelligent text analysis", "text data mining" or "knowledge-discovery in text (KDT)", is the process of extracting interesting and non-trivial information and knowledge from unstructured text.

Text mining is a young interdisciplinary field which draws on information retrieval, data mining, machine learning, statistics and computational linguistics. As most information (over 80%) is stored as text, text mining is believed to have a high commercial potential value. Recently, text mining is receiving much attention. Several research groups around the world, as well as R&D departments of big companies, are doing research on text mining. e.g. IBM, Microsoft etc. One of the largest text mining applications that exists is probably the classified ECHELON surveillance system.
