Text mining is trying to extract knowledge and information from text by using software and AI methodologies. Since most big data is text, Text Mining is extremely relevant for all fields of knowledge.

Text mining is about finding information in very large amounts of text. In the master Text Mining you will learn to do that, using linguistic knowledge, specialized software and AI methodologies like Machine Learning. Although text mining is grounded in linguistics, computer science and AI, it is extremely relevant for almost all fields of knowledge.

You probably never realized, but most big data is textual and the amount of digital text is rapidly growing and will continue to do so in the future. Although language is very accessible for humans, this is not the case for machines. That massive amount of information is very valuable, but hard to explore! And that is where Text Mining comes in.
