Naval Postgraduate School Monterey CA, Hall, Scott R.


The author developed an automatic text categorization approach and investigated its application upon categorizing emails. The categorization approach is derived from an instanced- based learning method that explores conditional probabilities of particular words. The effectiveness of the author's categorization approach using collections from a set of emails is then evaluated and assigned a numerical score based upon precision and recall. Precision was 65% while recall was 17%. The author's experiments indicated automatic categorization of incoming emails at the client level can categorize email, but is difficult when not using a standardized corpus. Word frequency is valuable, but should be used in combination with other methods such as phrase extraction for a higher level of performance.Naval Postgraduate School Monterey CA is the author of 'Automatic Text Categorization Applied to E-Mail', published 2002 under ISBN 9781423548836 and ISBN 1423548833.
