"text mining (classification

Hello all,

I read many tutorials about text mining (TM) including tutorials about TM using RM.

most of these tutorials uses support vector machine (SVM) and Naive-Bayes (NB) as classification methods. I conclude they are the best Algorithm for text classification.
do you recommend me to use these algorithm or there are other suitable algorithms for text classification. (I am looking for Algorithms that implemented in RM)
If SVM and NB are the best one, any references about that will be appreciated.

I also appreciate any recommendation of RM clustering algorithms for text.

Thanks in advance,
Motaz K. Saad

    I would suggest any clustering algorithm supporting the Cosine Similarity. And as always KMeans is worth a try.

    Have you done anything on Text Classification?

    I need help there...

    You can take a look at http://sites.google.com/site/motazsite/publications

    you can find there conclusions on Arabic text classification and conclusions text classification in general.

    Is there a good algorithm to use when my documents can have multiple categories assigned to them?  An example might be resumes where some are Java developers, some are SQL developers, and some are both Java and SQL developers?

    Hi, you can use Polynominal by Binominal Classification for this. This operator trains a model based on its inner process, where it tries to discriminate between each class and all other classes. During application the confidence for each class is calculated, and the one with the highest value is predicted. Please have a look at the attached process.

    Best, Marius
