A novel approach for text classification based ranking topics applied on Media data

Text classification is one of the important research issues in the field of text mining. Most text classification representation based on the bag of words. Others have proposed an ontology representation for a document to keep the semantic relationship between the terms in a document. An additional, approach called N-gram used a sequence of symbols that are extracted from the document's words. 

In this research, I propose a new approach that creates a group of words based on predefined function (such as topics, ontology, ..) where the ranking of the importance of each group is applied in order to eliminate the groups that less contribute to the classification task. The most significant groups are discovered to build the final model.
