Sorry, this event has now ended.

Café Scientifique is a global grassroots organisation, running across the world for more than ten years, which aims to improve communication between scientists and the general public and generally stimulate an interesting discussion. They have invited Prof Sophia Ananiadou, Director of NaCTeM to give a talk on text mining, entitled Text Mining: Finding the needle in the haystack you didn't even know was there!

Abstract: With the massive amount of knowledge recorded in unstructured textual form, we need automated methods that can extract and manage it. Text mining is a relatively new area of research used to extract automatically nuggets of information hidden in text and to present the distilled knowledge to users in a concise and meaningful manner. The National Centre for Text Mining (located at the School of Computer Science, The University of Manchester) has developed a number of text mining services to support a wide variety of users who are struggling to locate useful information from big textual data for their needs.

The talk, followed by a discussion, is free of charge and open to all.
