Data Classification Using a Digital Taxonomy

Data Classification Using a Digital Taxonomy (SYS-CON)(Printview): "Another implementation challenge is ensuring that data is classified correctly. There are auto-classification tools available that attempt to derive data context by using natural-language algorithms. These tools attempt to 'understand' the content of the given data by evaluating not just the keywords, but also the circumstance. Once attained, the tools will assign the data to the proper term in the taxonomy. The accuracy of these tools won't match human classification but could be acceptable especially if the data is already tagged using some form of metadata."
