In this talk, I give a brief introduction to Text Mining and Topic Modelling. I cover the basics of Information Retrieval, Information Extraction and Natural Language Processing (NLP) Techniques, as well as a detailed explanation of the Latent Dirichlet Allocation (LDA) model.
This talk was given in the Urban Big Data Centre (University of Glasgow).
These are the slides presented during the defence of my PhD Thesis in November 2018 at the University of Glasgow.
