Workshop: Natural Language Processing – Text Classification

March 10, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Instructor: Carl Stahmer

Date: March 10, 2017

Time: 12 – 1:30pm


This hands-on workshop will cover the theory and practice of Topic Modeling as a method of untrained
text classification. We will run a variety of models on the same corpus, identifying and discussing
the function of model parameters and their effect on output. Validation practices will also be
discussed. Participants should have moderate experience R and Git. Familiarity with the R “TM”
package will be beneficial but is not required. (Participation in the previous four workshops in
this series will prepare you well for this workshop.) Please come to the workshop with a working R
development environment and Git already installed and operational on your system.
