English abstract

It is useful to determine the topic of a text in order to make further classifications. This topic acts as the conceptual essence of that text. What happens when two texts do have the same topic? Then it is possible to establish semantic networks between those topics. These semantic networks have the form of a conceptual hierarchy, and do not belong to any of the texts, but are external meta-indexes of those documents. These indexes act as a structured filter of the content of the documents.

Spanish abstract

Reducir un texto a su tópico textual es muy útil a la hora de clasificarlo. El tópico correspondería con el contenido conceptual del texto. Se plantea entonces la cuestión de qué sucede cuando dos textos tienen el mismo tópico. Es posible, entonces, establecer redes semánticas entre esos tópicos en forma de jerarquías conceptuales que no pertenecen a ninguno de los textos en concreto, sino que actúan como meta-índices externos. Estos índices eactúan como filtros estructurados del contenido de dichos documentos.
