This workshop will take both a conceptual and practical deep dive into clustering and classification methods, broadly known as topic modeling. We examine the application of a variety of Natural Language Processing (NLP) techniques, including a discussion of the statistical methods behind the curtain in order learn how and when to apply a particular method. The workshop will involve both discussion and practical application. Prior experience with R and intermediate text mining techniques is required.
