Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Series Title: Studies in Computational Intelligence
Description:

> Recent advances in Text Categorization and Clustering

Automatic Text Categorization and Clustering are becoming more and more
important as the amount of text in electronic format grows and the access
to it becomes more necessary and widespread. Well known applications are
spam filtering and web search, but a large number of everyday uses exist
(intelligent web search, data mining, law enforcement, etc.) Currently,
researchers are employing many intelligent techniques for text
categorization and clustering, ranging from support vector machines and
neural networks to Bayesian inference and algebraic methods, such as Latent
Semantic Indexing.

This volume offers a wide spectrum of research work developed for
intelligent text categorization and clustering. In the following, we give a
brief introduction of the chapters that are included in this book.
