I can use tidy() on the output of an stm model, and then I will get the probabilities that each word is generated from each topic.

I haven’t watched the video yet, but that’s on my to-do list for today.

Notice we picked R-related operator names. We stayed away from overloading the + operator, as the arithmetic operators are somewhat special in how they dispatch in R. The goal wasn’t […]
