The SPECIALIST Text Categorization Tools

Text Categorization project provides tools for high level categorization based on Journal Descriptor Indexing (JDI) methodology. It is used to categorize text, index contents, retrieve records, and word sense disambiguation. JDI can be used for general categorization by using a relatively small set of high-level descriptors. Semantic Type Indexing (STI) is an extension of JDI that categorizes text according to Semantic Types. STI is used in the application of WSD (Word Sense Disambiguation). The text categorization tools are open source resources and are freely available subject to these terms and conditions.
