Text mining.

Text mining or text analytics is the area that brings together techniques to extract structured information or knowledge from texts. These techniques allow people to analyse information coded in text collections (on occasions of the big data type) effectively and easily, and this considerably facilitates decision-making processes. There are all kinds of tasks within this broad area: text classification, text clustering, named entity extraction, opinion extraction, document summarization and information retrieval, among others. Today, text mining technologies are being successfully used to address a whole range of needs of governments, research and markets.
