Text Mining Group @ the Kent Ridge Digital Labs (KRDL), Singapore http://textmining.krdl.org.sg The Text Mining group is part of the KRDL Knowledge Lab's strategic thrust in Business Intelligence. The group includes reseachers who bring in many years of R&D experience in the areas of machine translation, natural language processing, computational learning and visualization. We focus on three research areas. 1. Asian languages: in particular Chinese and Malay, besides English. While most text mining tools focus on processing English documents only, mining from documents in Asian languages allows access to previously untapped information and offers a new host of opportunities. 2. Fast and scalable mining algorithms: Natural language processing techniques are known to be computationally expensive. To handle very large corpus, we have partial semantic analysis and machine learning algorithms that are on-line, incremental, and scalable. 3. Domain Knowledge Integration: Domain knowledge plays a key role in knowledge discovery but is often overlooked by most current text mining tools. We build in structure for integrating domain knowledge in every aspects of text mining.
