Workshop

Rapid Miner: Playing with Text

Nowadays, text is everywhere such as: enterprise records, consumer complaints, product inquiries; social media; & product reviews. Text is just another form of data, and text processing is just a special case of data representation. Since we, humans, communicate via text, so understanding text is essential for us. However, text is referred to as “unstructured” data. Indeed, text has plenty of structure, but it is linguistic structure— intended for human consumption, not for machines. Therefore, it is difficult to evaluate any particular word or phrase without considering the context, on which it was written. In this session, we learn various things about text analytics.
