This course covers the elements of text mining techniques used to complement data mining methods but for unstructured text. The essential transformation techniques where text is prepared and handled to a form in which it can be mined is discussed and explained. Additionally, some standard techniques and excel functions will be also covered. (Prerequisite: BUSN662)

After successfully completing this course, you will be able to
- LO 1: Describe basic concepts and methods in text mining, for example document representation, information extraction, text classification and clustering, and topic modeling.
- LO 2: Use benchmark corpora, commercial and open-source text analysis and visualization tools to explore interesting patterns.
- LO 3: Understand conceptually the mechanism of advanced text mining algorithms for information extraction, text classification and clustering, opinion mining, and their applications in real-world problems.
- LO 4: Choose appropriate technologies for specific text analysis tasks, and evaluate the benefit and challenges of the chosen technical solution.
