Today huge amounts of data is becoming available to us from many sources including the Internet and other digitization efforts.
Due to the enormous scale of these data collections it is becoming unrealistic to assume that human supervision
can play any significant role in the classification and administration of this data. This is were automated machine
learning techniques play an important role in making sense with this information overload.
In this talk, we will briefly discuss machine learning techniques and then focus our attention on a particular powerful one:
Latent Dirichlet Allocation (LDA). We will describe LDA's model, from data collection to the analysis of the
output. We will break down the entire process of achieving a working prototype into manageable steps with attention
to the technical details behind each of the steps.
