Modeling and Prediction

Develop predictive models using topic models and word embeddings.

To find clusters and extract features from high-dimensional text datasets, you can use machine learning techniques and models such as LSA, LDA, and word embeddings. You can combine features created with Text Analytics Toolbox™ with features from other data sources. With these features, you can build machine learning models that take advantage of textual, numeric, and other types of data.
