TagLearner: A P2P Classifier Learning System from Collaboratively Tagged Text Documents
The amount of text data on the Internet is growing at a very fast rate. Online text repositories for news agencies, digital libraries and other organizations currently store gigaand tera-bytes of data. Large amounts of unstructured text poses a serious challenge for data mining and knowledge extraction. End user participation coupled with distributed computation can play a crucial role in meeting these challenges. In many applications involving classification of text documents, web users often participate in the tagging process. This collaborative tagging results in the formation of large scale Peer-to-Peer (P2P) systems which can function, scale and self-organize in the presence of highly transient population of nodes and do not need a central server for co-ordination. In this paper, we describe TagLearner, a P2P classifier learning system for extracting patterns from text data where the end users can participate both in the task of labeling the data and building a distributed classif...
