Text miningText mining
, also known as intelligent text analysis, text data mining or knowledge-discovery in text (KDT
), refers generally to the process of extracting interesting and non-trivial information
from unstructured text. Text mining is a young interdisciplinary field which draws on information retrieval
, data mining
, machine learning
and computational linguistics
. As most information (over 80%) is stored as text, text mining is believed to have a high commercial potential value.
