Master ProjectIn this project you will identify topics hidden in a social media or community forum dataset. You will have to do some research on the latest existing topic modelling or classification algorithms that are applicable on such text. Then, perform necessary data pre-processing and experiment both supervised and unsupervised algorithms on the dataset. This project is good for students who have some knowledge in Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing.
