Abstract

Instant Messaging is a mechanism for direct, informal and unstructured communication between two or more parties. Chat transcripts are available to show a recording of the conversation which has taken place. Further processing of the outcome of a chat requires parsing/reading of what has being said, and typically needs to be summarized manually.
