Basic Text Analysis Concepts, using Ruby

How to make an Auto Tagger! This is a beginners' level introduction to some elementary terminology and concepts used in text analysis and mining.

We will use Ruby to understand some basic ideas behind how textual documents are parsed and analyzed to do things like auto-tagging, document categorization, and document similarity matching.

This class will assume knowledge of Ruby basics - methods, arrays and hashes, regular expressions, writing simple classes, and reading files. It will not require any prior knowledge of statistics or text mining.

The code for this class is in the text_statistics folder of this Github repo
