Prof. Sophia Ananiadou, Director of NaCTeM, has been invited by Café Scientifique Manchester to give a talk on text mining, entitled Text Mining: Finding the needle in the haystack you didn't even know was there!. The talk, followed by a discussion, is free of charge and open to all. It will take place from 19:30 - 21:30 on Thursday 28th July at MadLab, 36-40 Edge Street, Northern Quarter, M4 1HN.

Café Scientifique is a global grassroots organisation, running across the world for more than ten years, which aims to improve communication between scientists and the general public and generally stimulate an interesting discussion.


With the massive amount of knowledge recorded in unstructured textual form, we need automated methods that can extract and manage it. Text mining is a relatively new area of research used to extract automatically nuggets of information hidden in text and to present the distilled knowledge to users in a concise and meaningful manner. The National Centre for Text Mining (located at the School of Computer Science, The University of Manchester) has developed a number of text mining services to support a wide variety of users who are struggling to locate useful information from big textual data for their needs. Join this session with Professor Sophia Ananiadou and find out how computers can help us digest large amount of information!
