About the Course

This course will cover the major techniques for mining and analyzing text data to discover interesting patterns, extract useful knowledge, and support decision making, with an emphasis on statistical approaches that can be generally applied to arbitrary text data in any natural language with no or minimum human effort. Detailed analysis of text data requires understanding of natural language text, which is known to be a difficult task for computers. However, a number of statistical approaches have been shown to work well for the "shallow" but robust analysis of text data for pattern finding and knowledge discovery. You will learn the basic concepts, principles, and major algorithms in text mining and their potential applications....

Excellent course, the pipeline they propose to help you understand text mining is quite helpful. It has an important introduction to the most key concepts and techniques for text mining and analytics.

The content of Text Mining and Analytics is very comprehensive and deep. More practise about how formula works would be better. Quiz could be not tough to be completed after attending every lectures.

Hot topic but a obsolete material.

Forums were poorly organized and not well participated in.

There was no forum topic for the honors assignment.

Honors assignment appeared to require unix, which was not stated in the course requirements.

Honors assignment was due too early in the term.

it is really dry. Not hands on at all. Not everyone knows c, would appreciate more approachable hands on experience

Too much theory, not enough practical exercises and too few examples of how the algorithms work.
