class nlp_primitives.LSA

Calculates the Latent Semantic Analysis Values of Text Input

Description:

Given a list of strings, transforms those strings using tf-idf and single value decomposition to go from a sparse matrix to a compact matrix with two values for each string. These values represent that Latent Semantic Analysis of each string. These values will represent their context with respect to (nltk’s brown sentence corpus.)[https://www.nltk.org/book/ch02.html#brown-corpus]

If a string is missing, return NaN.

Examples

>>> lsa = LSA()
>>> x = ["he helped her walk,", "me me me eat food", "the sentence doth long"]
>>> res = lsa(x).tolist()
>>> for i in range(len(res)): res[i] = [abs(round(x, 2)) for x in res[i]]
>>> res
[[0.0, 0.0, 0.01], [0.0, 0.0, 0.0]]

Now, if we change the values of the input corpus, to something that better resembles the given text, the same given input text will result in a different, more discerning, output. Also, NaN values are handled, as well as strings without words.

>>> lsa = LSA()
>>> x = ["the earth is round", "", np.NaN, ".,/"]
>>> res = lsa(x).tolist()
>>> for i in range(len(res)): res[i] = [abs(round(x, 2)) for x in res[i]]
>>> res
[[0.01, 0.0, nan, 0.0], [0.0, 0.0, nan, 0.0]]
