Subject [jira] [Created] (TIKA-1443) Add a junk text detector to Tika
Date Fri, 10 Oct 2014 12:40:33 GMT
Tim Allison created TIKA-1443:

             Summary: Add a junk text detector to Tika
                 Key: TIKA-1443
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-1443
             Project: Tika
          Issue Type: Wish
            Reporter: Tim Allison
            Priority: Minor

It would be helpful to have a detector that flags documents whose extracted text is junk.
 This could be used as a component of TIKA-1332 or as a standalone detector.  See TIKA-1332
for some initial ideas of what statistics we might use for such a detector.

Two use cases:
* Parser developers could quickly see whether changes in code lead to less "junky" documents
or more "junky" documents.  This would also aid in prioritizing manual review of output comparison
(see discussion in TIKA-1419).
* Search system integrators could use that information to set document specific relevancy
rankings or to avoid indexing a document
