Every day, a vast amount of text is generated – from news articles and social media posts to scientific publications and communications. Text Data Mining (TDM) can help to analyse this data statistically to uncover hidden trends and patterns. With easier access to text resources and analysis tools, TDM is becoming increasingly valuable across various research fields.
