Charlotte will summarize the methodology of textmining for information retrieval, different techniques, advantages and disadvantages. Primarily, she will be discussing the textmining procedure she undertook to develop and verify a database about the merger level characteristics and Commission's judgements of all EU merger control decisions since 1990. Additionally, she will briefly summarize her exploration of the EU and US consulation (on AI regulation and the AI economy) as another potential application area of quantitative textmining.
