We demonstrate a new technique for building associative networks based on Wikipedia, comparing them to WordNet-based associative networks that we used previously, nding the Wikipedia-based networks to perform better at document classification. Additionally, we compare the performance of associative networks to various other text classification techniques using the Reuters-21578 dataset, establishing that associative networks can achieve comparable results.
