Last week I met with a long-lost friend in ICASSP 2010 held in Dallas, TX. More precisely, the very nice friend of mine, Duangmanee (Pew), was my senior student when we were in the same high-school. In the conference, we had a good time (almost an hour) discussing about our lives, updates on our others friends (heeheehee…a nice way to say “gossips”) and our research, and I’m very lucky that Pew is an expert on Topic Models that I’m interested in. Since I’m a beginner on this topic, so I think I will have to learn some more fundamental works on this topic first prior to understanding Pew’s paper.
This post is my effort to list all good papers, notes and tutorials on topic models in the hope that it might be useful for other beginners like me. Please feel free to suggest in order to make this post of the most useful to learners.
