I installed the Word & Web Vector plugin for YALE (Rapidminer) this week and have been pleasantly surprised with it. However, with any YALE plugin or software, it takes a lot of time to figure out how to use it. Despite the large learning curve, I’ve been able to web mine a few websites and build a preliminary word list.
Now, no structured web data source is safe from the clutches of Neural Market Trends!
> The Word & Web Vector Tool is a flexible Java library for statistical language modeling and integration of Web and Webservice based data sources. It supports the creation of word vector representations of text documents in the vector space model that is the point of departure for many text processing applications (e.g. text classification or information retrieval). Furthermore, it offers convenient interactive methods to extract data from structured sources, such was HTML or XML files. Finally, it allows to integrate external data by using Webservice APIs in a mashup-like way (e.g. for geo-mapping). [nemoz.org]
I’m looking forward to becoming the new Google! :)
