With the vast amounts of unstructured data available on the web and stored in databases, and the promise it will provide insights unavailable in structured data, text mining has become an indispensable addition to traditional predictive analytics.
In this course, students will learn practical techniques for text extraction and text mining in a data mining context, including document clustering and classification, information retrieval, and the enhancement of structured data. Emphasis will be placed on the practical use of text mining in business. In addition, basic concepts of textual information such as tokenization, part-of-speech tagging, and disambiguation will be covered.
