Last week, we had a great course on Text Mining with R at the European Data Innovation Hub. For persons interested in text mining with R, another 1-day crash course is scheduled at the Leuven Statistics Research Center (Belgium) on November 17 (http://lstat.kuleuven.be/training/coursedescriptions/text-mining-with-r). The following elements are covered in the course.

1. Import of (structured) text data with focus on text encodings. Detection of language

2. Cleaning of text data, regular expressions

3. String distances

4. Graphical displays of text data

5. Natural language processing: stemming, parts-of-speech (POS) tagging, tokenization, lemmatisation, entity recognition

6. Sentiment analysis

7. Statistical topic detection modelling and visualisation (latent dirichlet allocation)

8. Automatic classification using predictive modelling based on text data
