Graph-based techniques for tweet classiﬁcation in Spanish
MetadataShow full item record
Topic classification of texts is one of the most interesting challenges in Natural Language Processing (NLP). Topic classifiers commonly use a bag of words approach, in which the classifier uses (and is trained with) selected terms from the in put texts. In this work we present techniques based on graph similarity to classify short texts by topic. In our classifier we build graphs from the input texts, and then use properties of these graphs to classify them. We have tested the resulting algorithm by classifying Twitter messages in Spanish among a predefined set of topics, achieving more than 70% accuracy.
