SMS Spam Detection using Machine Learning Approach

  title={SMS Spam Detection using Machine Learning Approach},
  author={Houshmand Shirani-mehr},
Over recent years, as the popularity of mobile phone devices has increased, Short Message Service (SMS) has grown into a multi-billion dollars industry. At the same time, reduction in the cost of messaging services has resulted in growth in unsolicited commercial advertisements (spams) being sent to mobile phones. In parts of Asia, up to 30% of text messages were spam in 2012. Lack of real databases for SMS spams, short length of messages and limited features, and their informal language are… Expand
