NNS.term.matrix: NNS Term Matrix

Description Usage Arguments Value References Examples

View source: R/NNS_term_matrix.R

Description

Generates a term matrix for text classification use in NNS.reg.

Usage

1

Arguments

x

mixed data.frame; character/numeric; A two column dataset should be used. Concatenate text from original sources to comply with format. Also note the possibility of factors in "DV", so "as.numeric(as.character(...))" is used to avoid issues.

oos

mixed data.frame; character/numeric; Out-of-sample text dataset to be classified.

names

logical; Column names for "IV" and "oos". Defaults to FALSE.

Value

Returns the text as independent variables "IV" and the classification as the dependent variable "DV". Out-of-sample independent variables are returned with "OOS".

x <- data.frame(cbind(c("sunny", "rainy"), c(1, -1)))
NNS.term.matrix(x)

### Concatenate Text with space separator, cbind with "DV"
x <- data.frame(cbind(c("sunny", "rainy"), c("windy", "cloudy"), c(1, -1)))
x <- data.frame(cbind(paste(x[ , 1], x[ , 2], sep = " "), as.numeric(as.character(x[ , 3]))))
NNS.term.matrix(x)


### NYT Example
## Not run: 
require(RTextTools)
data(NYTimes)

### Concatenate Columns 3 and 4 containing text, with column 5 as DV
NYT <- data.frame(cbind(paste(NYTimes[ , 3], NYTimes[ , 4], sep = " "),
                     as.numeric(as.character(NYTimes[ , 5]))))
NNS.term.matrix(NYT)
## End(Not run)
