21 December 2000 Evaluating text categorization in the presence of OCR errors
Author Affiliations +
In this paper we describe experiments that investigate the effects of OCR errors on text categorization. In particular, we show that in our environment, OCR errors have no effect on categorization when we use a classifier based on the naive Bayes model. We also observe that dimensionality reduction techniques eliminate a large number of OCR errors and improve categorization results.
