Proposed by:
Text documents are a potential source of knowledge useful for decision support across a range of business activities. In many areas, however, this data source is not given adequate attention or has a number of unsolved related issues. The dissertation will focus on mining knowledge relevant for a domain selected by the student (marketing research, access to foreign markets, improving products/services, decisions on investment strategy, analysis of public opinion, etc.). Mining knowledge will rely mainly on the methods of inductive machine learning, including supervised, unsupervised, on semi-supervised methods and their combinations. During the entire process suitable external information from the related problem domain will be used, often processed and included in the mining process automatically.
