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.

2. Cleaning of text data, regular expressions

3. String distances

4. Graphical displays of text data

6. Sentiment analysis

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

8. Automatic classification using predictive modelling based on text data
