On the impact of dataset characteristics on arabic document classification Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract This paper describes the impact of dataset characteristics on the results of Arabic document classification algorithms using TF-IDF representations. The experiments compared different stemmers, different categories and different training set sizes, and found that different dataset characteristics produced widely differing results, in one case attaining a remarkable 99% recall (accuracy).
