This is a seminar course on text data mining.
Text data mining, or simply text mining, is not a well-defined concept.
In a very broad sense, it can mean any manipulation of text information.
In a narrow sense, which seems to be more reasonable, it refers to the exploitation
of online text information to discover useful hidden patterns from text.
With more and more online text information available,
text mining has many applications, especially in bioinformatics, humanity science,
and intelligence communities.
In this course, we will selectively read recent research papers on text mining and
focus on its applications in web mining and bioinformatics.
