TOM: A library for topic modeling and browsing
In EGC 2016, vol. RNTI-E-30, pp.451-456
In this paper, we present TOM (TOpic Modeling), a Python library for topic modeling and browsing. Its objective is to allow for an efficient analysis of a text corpus from start to finish, via the discovery of latent topics. To this end, TOM features advanced functions for preparing and vectorizing a text corpus. It also offers a unified interface for two topic models (namely LDA using either variational inference or Gibbs sampling, and NMF using alternating leastsquare with a projected gradient method), and implements three state-of-the-art methods for estimating the optimal number of topics to model a corpus. What is more, TOM constructs an interactive Web-based browser that makes exploring a topic model and the related corpus easy.
