Nov 23, Dec 3, VSM, interpreted in a lato sensu, is a space where text is represented as a vector of numbers instead of its original string textual representation; the VSM represents the features extracted from the document.

The first step in modeling the document into a vector space is to create a dictionary of terms present in documents. So, what the returns is how many times is the term is present in the document. Now you understood how the term-frequency works, we can go on into the creation of the document vector, which is represented by:.

As you can see, since the documents and are:. But wait, since we have a collection of documents, now represented by vectors, we can represent them as a matrix with shape, where is the cardinality of the document space, or how many documents we have and the is the number of features, in our case represented by the vocabulary size. An example of the matrix representation of the vectors described above is:. Environment Used : Python v. In scikit.

See that the vocabulary created is the same as except because it is zero-indexed. Note that the sparse matrix created called smatrix is a Scipy sparse matrix with elements stored in a Coordinate format.

But you can convert it into a dense format:. Note that the sparse matrix created is the same matrix we cited earlier in this post, which represents the two document vectors and. As promised, here is the second part of this tutorial series.

The classic Vector Space Model. The most influential paper Gerard Salton never wrote. Wikipedia: tf-idf. Wikipedia: Vector space model. Very enjoyable post!

Thanks, the mix of actual examples with theory is very handy to see the theory in action and helps retain the theory better.

Though in this particular post, i was a little disappointed as i felt it ended too soon. I would like more longer articles. But i guess longer articles turn off majority of the readers.

I can highly recommend both libraries! Informative Blog Post, helped me a lot in understanding the concept. Please, keep the series going. Thanks a lot for this writeup. At times its really good to know what is cooking backstage behind all fancy and magical functions.

Bernoulli naive-bayes is out, because our features aren't binary anymore. Seems like we can't use Multinomial naive-bayes either, because the values are continuous rather than categorical.

As an alternative, would it be appropriate to use gaussian naive bayes instead? The multinomial Naive Bayes classifier is suitable for classification with discrete features e.

### Machine Learning :: Text feature extraction (tf-idf) – Part I

The multinomial distribution normally requires integer feature counts. However, in practice, fractional counts such as tf-idf may also work. Isn't it fundamentally impossible to use fractional values for MultinomialNB? Technically, you are right. The traditional Multinomial N. By definition, this vector x then follows a multinomial distribution, leading to the characteristic classification function of MNB.

When using TF-IDF weights instead of term counts, our feature vectors are most likely not following a multinomial distribution anymore, so the classification function is not theoretically well-founded anymore. Howeverit does turn out that tf-idf weights instead of counts work much better.

In the exact same way, except that the feature vector x is now a vector of tf-idf weights and not counts. You can also check out the Sublinear tf-idf weighting scheme, implemented in sklearn tfidf-vectorizer.

In my own research I found this one performing even better: it uses a logarithmic version of the term frequency. The idea is that when a query term occurs 20 times in doc. Learn more. Ask Question. Asked 3 years ago. Active 2 years, 1 month ago. Viewed 2k times.

How would we now use this as input to a Naive Bayes classifier? The sci-kit learn documentation for MultionomialNB suggests the following: The multinomial Naive Bayes classifier is suitable for classification with discrete features e.

This post is a continuation of the first part where we started to learn the theory and practice about text feature extraction and vector space model representation. I really recommend you to read the first part of the post series in order to follow this second post.

Since a lot of people liked the first part of this tutorial, this second part is a little longer than the first. In the first post, we learned how to use the term-frequency to represent textual information in the vector space. However, the main problem with the term-frequency approach is that it scales up frequent terms and scales down rare terms which are empirically more informative than the high frequency terms.

The basic intuition is that a term that occurs frequently in many documents is not a good discriminator, and really makes sense at least in many experimental tests ; the important question here is: why would you, in a classification problem for instance, emphasize a term which is almost present in the entire corpus of your documents?

The tf-idf weight comes to solve this problem. The use of this simple term frequency could lead us to problems like keyword spammingwhich is when we have a repeated term in a document with the purpose of improving its ranking on an IR Information Retrieval system or even create a bias towards long documents, making them look more important than they are just because of the high frequency of the term in the document.

To overcome this problem, the term frequency of a document on a vector space is usually also normalized. Suppose we are going to normalize the term-frequency vector that we have calculated in the first part of this tutorial.

The document from the first part of this tutorial had this textual representation:. And the vector space representation using the non-normalized term-frequency of that document was:. The definition of the unit vector of a vector is:.

The unit vector is actually nothing more than a normalized version of the vector, is a vector which the length is 1. But the important question here is how the length of the vector is calculated and to understand this, you must understand the motivation of the spaces, also called Lebesgue spaces.

Usually, the length of a vector is calculated using the Euclidean norm — a norm is a function that assigns a strictly positive length or size to all vectors in a vector space - which is defined by:. Which is nothing more than a simple sum of the components of the vector, also known as Taxicab distancealso called Manhattan distance. Taxicab geometry versus Euclidean distance: In taxicab geometry all three pictured lines have the same length 12 for the same route.

In Euclidean geometry, the green line has lengthand is the unique shortest path. Source: Wikipedia :: Taxicab Geometry. And that is it! Our normalized vector has now a L2-norm. Suppose you have the following documents in your collection taken from the first part of tutorial :. Your document space can be defined then as where is the number of documents in your corpus, and in our case as and. Since we have 4 features, we have to calculate,:. Now that we have our matrix with the term frequency and the vector representing the idf for each feature of our matrixwe can calculate our tf-idf weights.By using our site, you acknowledge that you have read and understand our Cookie PolicyPrivacy Policyand our Terms of Service.

Stack Overflow for Teams is a private, secure spot for you and your coworkers to find and share information. I'm trying to implement the naive Bayes classifier for sentiment analysis.

I'm just a little stuck now. NB generally uses the word feature frequency to find the maximum likelihood. I suggest to use either gensim [1]or scikit-learn [2] to compute the weights, which you then pass to your Naive Bayes fitting procedure. How are we doing? Please help us improve Stack Overflow.

We used a public SMS Spam datasetwhich is not purely clean dataset. The data consists of two different columns featuressuch as context, and class.

The column context is referring to SMS. The column class may take a value that can be either spam or ham corresponding to related SMS context. Before applying any supervised learning methods, we applied a bunch of data cleansing operations to get rid of messy and dirty data since it has some broken and messy context. To manage data transformation in training and testing phase effectively and avoid data leakagewe used Sklearn's Pipeline class. So, we added each data transformation step e.

After applying those supervised learning methods, we also perfomed deep learning. Our deep learning architecture we used is based on LSTM. At the end of each processing by different classifier, we plotted confusion matrix to compare which one the best classifier for filtering SPAM SMS. Skip to content.
