Course objectives
Basic techniques and algorithms used in textual information systems are taught. That means text search algorithms (KMP, AC, BM, RK, ...), data structures used for index storage, query languages, architecture of textual information system that uses natural language processing techniques.

Assessment methods (in Czech)
Výuka probíhá klasickým způsobem a je zakončena písemným testem (tvoří 70 % hodnocení). Příklady testů z předchozích let jsou vystaveny na webu předmětu. 30 % závěrečného hodnocení tvoří hodnocení písemek zadávaných v průběhu semestru na cvičeních. Na cvičeních dochází k procvičování látky z přednášek, k brainstormingu. V průběhu výuky jsou studenti motivováni dílčími úkoly honorovanými udělením prémiových bodů.
