A Multilayer Correlated Topic Model

01/02/2021 ∙ by Ye Tian, et al. ∙ 0

We proposed a novel multilayer correlated topic model (MCTM) to analyze how the main ideas inherit and vary between a document and its different segments, which helps understand an article's structure. The variational expectation-maximization (EM) algorithm was derived to estimate the posterior and parameters in MCTM. We introduced two potential applications of MCTM, including the paragraph-level document analysis and market basket data analysis. The effectiveness of MCTM in understanding the document structure has been verified by the great predictive performance on held-out documents and intuitive visualization. We also showed that MCTM could successfully capture customers' popular shopping patterns in the market basket analysis.
