Social Network Discovery of Computational Sustainability – Implementations of LDA

We have used two approaches for applying LDA model to our dataset. LingPipe: LingPipe, is a Java library which provides many of the functions required in NLP. We have used LingPipe in the following manner. We have used symmetric KL Divergence to calculate the similarity of a paper with respect to each of the seed […]

Social Network Discovery of Computational Sustainability Community – Introduction

I am using the write up done by Kiyan from here. The Problem: We possess a set of seed papers written on topics in computational sustainability, and a corpus of papers in Computer Science (derived from the DBLP database) that contains the seed papers as a subset.  The problem is to develop a similarity measure between papers that […]
