Text mining tries to solve the crisis of information overload by combining techniques from data mining, machine learning, natural language processing, information retrieval, and knowledge management. In addition to providing an in-depth examination of core text mining and link detection algorithms and operations, this book examines advanced pre-processing techniques, knowledge representation considerations, and visualization approaches. Finally, it explores current real-world, mission-critical applications of text mining and link detection in such varied fields as M&A business intelligence, genomics research and counter-terrorism activities.Read more

"A good introduction to text mining written by leading experts in the field. The book is well written and addresses both the theory and practice of text mining, which makes it appealing for researchers and practitioners alike... Highly recommended to those who would like to start delving into the area of text mining without having any previous background in computational linguistics."
