Unstructured free text is plentiful and valuable, for example:  Doctor's notes, news stories, call-center notes.   We would like to take advantage of such text for warnings of serious medical conditions, classifying reports, and identifying customers likely to leave for a competitor.
 
Text can be hard to use for predictive modeling, but in some respects it is also easier to use than structured numeric data.  This talk will give a high-level overview of opportunities and challenges in using text in predictive models, and survey technical approaches for representing and modeling text.
