Class Description

The focus will be on using topic modeling for digital literary applications, using a sample corpus of novels by Victor Hugo, but the techniques learned can be applied to any Big Data text corpus. Special attention will be paid to explaining the principles underlying LDA (Latent Dirichlet Allocation), as well as tips for proper data management in MALLET use cases.
