Perl class performing Bayesian prediction of categories
This module implements the classic “Naive Bayes” machine learning algorithm. It is a well-studied probabilistic algorithm often used in automatic text categorization. Compared to other algorithms kNN, SVM, Decision Trees, it’s pretty fast and reasonably competitive in the quality of its results.
A paper by Fabrizio Sebastiani provides a really good introduction to text categorization http//faure.iei.pi.cnr.it/~fabrizio/Publications/ACMCS02.pdf
