Therefore, there are two issues in this representation, i.e. (1) what should a term be and (2) how to weight a term. This paper examined ways to represent text from the above two aspects to improve the performance of text categorization. Different representations have been evaluated using SVM on three biomedical corpora. The controlled experiments showed that the straightforward usage of named entities as terms in VSM does not show performance improvements over the bag-of-words representation. On the other hand, the term weighting method slightly improved the performance. However, to further improve the performance of text categorization, more advanced techniques and more effective usages of natural language processing for text representations appear needed. ©2007 IEEE.||Source Title:||IEEE International Conference on Neural Networks - Conference Proceedings||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/40984||ISBN:||142441380X||ISSN:||10987576||DOI:||10.1109/IJCNN.2007.4371361|
