quanteda.textmodels: Scaling Models and Classifiers for Textual Data


Scaling models and classifiers for sparse matrix objects representing textual data in the form of a document-feature matrix. Includes original implementations of 'Laver', 'Benoit', and Garry's (2003) \Sexpr[results=rd]{tools:::Rd_expr_doi("10.1017/S0003055403000698")}, 'Wordscores' model, the Perry and 'Benoit' (2017) arXiv:1710.08963 class affinity scaling model, and the 'Slapin' and 'Proksch' (2008) \Sexpr[results=rd]{tools:::Rd_expr_doi("10.1111/j.1540-5907.2008.00338.x")} 'wordfish' model, as well as methods for correspondence analysis, latent semantic analysis, and fast Naive Bayes and linear 'SVMs' specially designed for sparse textual data.
