Abstract

The Internet and the World Wide Web have led to a massive increase in the amount of data publicly available for researchers to analyze. This has resulted in the growth of new fields of study like Data Mining and Machine Learning. A hot topic these days is the field of Text Mining. In this talk, I'll give an introduction to some ideas and techniques in Text Mining that span a variety of disciplines including the humanities (Literature and History) and the sciences (Functional Genomics and Bioinformatics).
