In particular, we have built two SMS spam test collections of significant size, in English and Spanish. We have tested on them a number of messages representation techniques and Machine Learning algorithms, in terms of effectiveness. Our results demonstrate that Bayesian filtering techniques can be effectively transferred from email...
