Supervised HDP using prior knowledge

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

End users can find topic model results difficult to interpret and evaluate. To address user needs, we present a semi-supervised hierarchical Dirichlet process for topic modeling that incorporates user-defined prior knowledge. Applied to a large electronic dataset, the generated topics are more fine-grained, more distinct, and align better with users' assignments of topics to documents.
