sentopics: Tools for Joint Sentiment and Topic Analysis of Textual Data

A framework that joins topic modeling and sentiment analysis of textual data. The package implements a fast Gibbs sampling estimation of Latent Dirichlet Allocation (Griffiths and Steyvers (2004) <doi:10.1073/pnas.0307752101>) and Joint Sentiment/Topic Model (Lin, He, Everson and Ruger (2012) <doi:10.1109/TKDE.2011.48>). It offers a variety of helpers and visualizations to analyze the result of topic modeling. The framework also allows enriching topic models with dates and externally computed sentiment measures. A flexible aggregation scheme enables the creation of time series of sentiment or topical proportions from the enriched topic models. Moreover, a novel method jointly aggregates topic proportions and sentiment measures to derive time series of topical sentiment.
