We will be using all that information to create a Spam filter. This tutorial will also cover Feature Engineering and ensemble NLP in text classification.

Log Skeletons: A Classification Approach to Process Discovery

arXiv.org Artificial Intelligence

To test the effectiveness of process discovery algorithms, a Process Discovery Contest (PDC) has been set up. This PDC uses a classification approach to measure this effectiveness: The better the discovered model can classify whether or not a new trace conforms to the event log, the better the discovery algorithm is supposed to be. Unfortunately, even the state-of-the-art fully-automated discovery algorithms score poorly on this classification. Even the best of these algorithms, the Inductive Miner, scored only 147 correct classified traces out of 200 traces on the PDC of 2017. This paper introduces the rule-based log skeleton model, which is closely related to the Declare constraint model, together with a way to classify traces using this model. This classification using log skeletons is shown to score better on the PDC of 2017 than state-of-the-art discovery algorithms: 194 out of 200. As a result, one can argue that the fully-automated algorithm to construct (or: discover) a log skeleton from an event log outperforms existing state-of-the-art fully-automated discovery algorithms.

Text Classification based on Word Subspace with Term-Frequency

arXiv.org Machine Learning

Text classification has become indispensable due to the rapid increase of text in digital form. Over the past three decades, efforts have been made to approach this task using various learning algorithms and statistical models based on bag-of-words (BOW) features. Despite its simple implementation, BOW features lack semantic meaning representation. To solve this problem, neural networks started to be employed to learn word vectors, such as the word2vec. Word2vec embeds word semantic structure into vectors, where the angle between vectors indicates the meaningful similarity between words. To measure the similarity between texts, we propose the novel concept of word subspace, which can represent the intrinsic variability of features in a set of word vectors. Through this concept, it is possible to model text from word vectors while holding semantic information. To incorporate the word frequency directly in the subspace model, we further extend the word subspace to the term-frequency (TF) weighted word subspace. Based on these new concepts, text classification can be performed under the mutual subspace method (MSM) framework. The validity of our modeling is shown through experiments on the Reuters text database, comparing the results to various state-of-art algorithms.

r/MachineLearning - [D] Text classification on a small dataset


I am trying to perform multiclass text classification (for 24 classes) on a set documents, but I have a very small dataset currently (1200 total examples). The data collection process is a bit tedious in my case, hence the small dataset size. The best result I have achieved till now is 58% accuracy with an SVM model and a single layer CNN model. Is there any other approach I can try other than collecting more data? I have tried oversampling the training set, but it didn't seem to improve the performance.

Text Classification with TensorFlow Estimators


Note: This post was written together with the awesome Julian Eisenschlos and was originally published on the TensorFlow blog. Throughout this post we will show you how to classify text using Estimators in TensorFlow. Welcome to Part 4 of a blog series that introduces TensorFlow Datasets and Estimators. You don't need to read all of the previous material, but take a look if you want to refresh any of the following concepts. Part 1 focused on pre-made Estimators, Part 2 discussed feature columns, and Part 3 how to create custom Estimators.

Machine Learning Helps Humans Perform Text Analysis


To augment that approach, we've found that we can use machine learning to improve the semantic data models as the data set evolves. Our specific use-case is text data in millions of documents. We've found that machine learning facilitates the storage and exploration of data that would otherwise be too vast to support valuable insights. Machine Learning (ML) allows for a model to improve over time given new training data, without requiring more human effort. For example, a common text-classification benchmark task is to train a model on messages for multiple discussion board threads and then later use it to predict what the topic of discussion was (space, computers, religion, etc).

Introduction to ML Classification Models using scikit-learn


This course will give you a fundamental understanding of Machine Learning overall with a focus on building classification models. Basic ML concepts of ML are explained, including Supervised and Unsupervised Learning; Regression and Classification; and Overfitting. There are 3 lab sections which focus on building classification models using Support Vector Machines, Decision Trees and Random Forests using real data sets. The implementation will be performed using the scikit-learn library for Python. The Intro to ML Classification Models course is meant for developers or data scientists (or anybody else) who knows basic Python programming and wishes to learn about Machine Learning, with a focus on solving the problem of classification.

Data Version Control Tutorial – dataversioncontrol


Today the data science community is still lacking good practices for organizing their projects and effectively collaborating. ML algorithms and methods are no longer simple "tribal knowledge" but are still difficult to implement, manage and reuse. To address the reproducibility we have build Data Version Control or DVC. This example shows you how to solve a text classification problem using the DVC tool. Git branches should beautifully reflect the non-linear structure common to the ML process, where each hypotheses can be presented as a Git branch. However, inability to store data in a repository and the discrepancy between code and data make it extremely difficult to manage a data science project with Git.

Regression vs. Classification Algorithms


Machine learning generates a lot of buzz because it's applicable across such a wide variety of use cases. That's because machine learning is actually a set of many different methods that are each uniquely suited to answering diverse questions about a business. To better understand machine learning algorithms, it's helpful to separate them into groups based on how they work.

New machine-assisted text classification on Content Moderator now in public preview


Content Moderator is part of Microsoft Cognitive Services allowing businesses to use machine assisted moderation of text, images, and videos that augment human review. The text moderation capability now includes a new machine-learning based text classification feature which uses a trained model to identify possible abusive, derogatory or discriminatory language such as slang, abbreviated words, offensive, and intentionally misspelled words for review. In contrast to the existing text moderation service that flags profanity terms, the text classification feature helps detect potentially undesired content that may be deemed as inappropriate depending on context. In addition, to convey the likelihood of each category it may recommend a human review of the content. The text classification feature is in preview and supports the English language.
