My main research is in providing assistance and solutions to challenges with research activity through the use of text mining techniques. As part of this goal my research is focussed upon large scale information retrieval tasks and how they can be improved through the integration of text and data mining tools with natural language processing algorithms. In order to achieve the scalability of solutions this has been investigated alongside distributed computing techniques. To complement the technical development and application provision I am interested in the human factors associated with non-expert use of these tools, in particular the seemingly self imposed barriers built by arts and humanities users. Therefore usability studies and interface development are key issues during the development and evaluation phases of my research.

Workflow Termine Webservice (1)

Termine is a service provided by the National Centre for Text Mining (NaCTeM) to assist in the discovery of terms in text. More information on the Termine service can be found here. This workflow represents the simplest method of using Termine. The input represents a text string with the output being an string containing a representation of the list of terms, with their C-Value scores (representing significance in the text), in a simple xml format. Other variations of this tools will be adde...
