This text covers the emerging technologies of document retrieval,
information extraction, and text categorization in a way which
highlights commonalities in terms of both general principles and
practical issues. It seeks to satisfy a need on the part of technology
practitioners in the Internet space, faced with having to make
difficult decisions as to what research has been done and what the
best practices are. It is not intended as a vendor guide (such things
are quickly out of date), or as a recipe for building applications
(such recipes are very context-dependent). But it does identify the
key technologies, the issues involved, and the strengths and
weaknesses of the various approaches. There is also a strong emphasis
on evaluation in every chapter, both in terms of methodology (how to
evaluate) and what controlled experimentation and industrial
experience have to tell us.
