Case Studies: Finding Similar Documents
A reader is interested in a specific news article and you want to find similar articles to recommend. What is the right notion of similarity? Moreover, what if there are millions of other documents? Each time you want to a retrieve a new document, do you need to search through all other documents? How do you group similar documents together? How do you discover new, emerging topics that the documents cover?
In this third case study, finding similar documents, you will examine similarity-based algorithms for retrieval. In this course, you will also examine structured representations for describing the documents in the corpus, including clustering and mixed membership models, such as latent Dirichlet allocation (LDA). You will implement expectation maximization (EM) to learn the document clusterings, and see how to scale the methods using MapReduce.
Learning Outcomes: By the end of this course, you will be able to:
-Create a document retrieval system using k-nearest neighbors.
-Identify various similarity metrics for text data.
-Reduce computations in k-nearest neighbor search by using KD-trees.
-Produce approximate nearest neighbors using locality sensitive hashing.
-Compare and contrast supervised and unsupervised learning tasks.
-Cluster documents by topic using k-means.
-Describe how to parallelize k-means using MapReduce.
-Examine probabilistic clustering approaches using mixtures models.
-Fit a mixture of Gaussian model using expectation maximization (EM).
-Perform mixed membership modeling using latent Dirichlet allocation (LDA).
-Describe the steps of a Gibbs sampler and how to use its output to draw inferences.
-Compare and contrast initialization techniques for non-convex optimization objectives.
-Implement these techniques in Python....

excellent material! It would be nice, however, to mention some reading material, books or articles, for those interested in the details and the theories behind the concepts presented in the course.

Excellent course, well thought out lectures and problem sets. The programming assignments offer an appropriate amount of guidance that allows the students to work through the material on their own.

This was another great course. I hope that the instructors indulge in a little bit more theory. Anyway it was a magnificent course. Hope the coming courses are as good as this one.

I really enjoyed and learned a lot from this class. It made me interested to go out and learn other machine learning methods which are derived from what was taught.

A great course to understand clustering as well as text mining. Lectures on KDD and LSH are equally important to understand and implement these algo . Many thanks

I liked it a lot. My only problem was to get the GraphLab to work here. Loved the option to download the videos and material before and the content is awesome.

Excellent Course. This course provides in depth understanding of what's going in the background when an algorithm runs and how we can tune it for our purpose.

Fascinating course…

LDA is little bit difficult to understand, but K-mean and Mixture models are easy to understand and quite important for clustering..

Good presentation of topics. Detailed walk through of few advanced topics covered at the end would have been great. Felt the presentation went too fast.

This is the toughest courses in the specialization so far. But if you manage to complete it, you'll have some really advance skills under your belt.

The course is really helpful, though it would be better for teacher to illustrate the concepts by using examples, instead of abstract terminologies

Since I took the courses 1, 2 and 3 of this series, I really enjoyed this fourth part a lot!

Now I'm really looking forward to do some clustering!

This was probably the most challenging course of them all, I thoroughly enjoyed it! Looking forward to dimensionality reduction and the capstone.

This is the best course in ML - would recommend it ...the sequence of the courses is the best...the specialization in this ML is a career boost

very good course but the last few topics could be improved with better assignments that could be broken down into smaller sub assignments

The course dived into basic and advanced concepts of unsupervised learning. As before, Prof Fox did a great job at explaining things.

Wish to have more detail on implementing the algorithm. Assignments are too easy for understanding the knowledge behind the scene.
