Topic: Text Mining with R 
Speaker:  Dr Donovan Govan

Abstract: Increasing amounts of electronic text is becoming accessible, such as from social media, customer feedback, and electronic book repositories. When compared to databases and other labelled datasets, this largely unstructured text data forms a great majority of all data. Text mining is a process of extracting structured numerical information about certain features of the body of text, and then selecting and potentially comparing salient subsets of the information.

We thank you for your continued attendance at the MMM's.  Let's keep the momentum going.

MARCS staff and students are reminded that all meetings and workshops have an important role in building and maintaining the sense of community which is central to the success of MARCS as a cooperative and energetic research institute.  Your attendance is both welcomed and expected.
