Description

Text analysis tools aid in extracting meaning from digital content. As digital text becomes more and more complex, new techniques are needed to understand conceptual structure.

Concept Parsing Algorithms (CPA) for Textual Analysis and Discovery: Emerging Research and Opportunities provides an innovative perspective on the application of algorithmic tools to study unstructured digital content. Highlighting pertinent topics such as semantic tools, semiotic systems, and pattern detection, this book is ideally designed for researchers, academics, students, professionals, and practitioners interested in developing a better understanding of digital text analysis.

Topics Covered

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Interactive Concept Discovery
  • Natural Languages
  • Pattern Detection
  • Semantic Tools
  • Semiotic systems
  • Sub-Languages
