Subject [jira] [Created] (SPARK-9134) LDA Asymmetric topic-word prior
Date Fri, 17 Jul 2015 08:24:04 GMT
Feynman Liang created SPARK-9134:

             Summary: LDA Asymmetric topic-word prior
                 Key: SPARK-9134
             Project: Spark
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: MLlib
            Reporter: Feynman Liang

SPARK-8536 generalizes LDA to asymmetric document-topic priors, which [Wallach et al|]
proposes offers greater utility in terms of asymmetric priors.

However, [Stanford NLP|]
also permits asymmetric priors on the topic-word prior. We should not support manually specifying
the entire matrix (which has numTopics * vocabSize entries); rather we should follow Stanford
NLP and take a single vector of length vocabSize for a prior over words and assume that all
topics share this prior (e.g. replicate it numTopics times to get the topic-word prior matrix).

We are leaving this as todo; any users who have a need for this feature should discuss on
this JIRA.
