Text mining techniques have been studied aggressively in order to extract the knowledge from the data since late 1990s. Even if many important techniques have been developed, the text mining research field continues to expand for the needs arising from various application fields. This book is composed of 9 chapters introducing advanced text mining techniques.

The book Editor, Prof. Shigeaki Sakurai is a visiting professor at Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan, and is also with Corporate Research & Development Center, Toshiba Corporation.
