Generating Basic Features From Text Data In R With textfeatures

Abdul Majed Raja demonstrates the textfeatures package in R:

Michael Kearney, Assistant Professor in University of Missouri, well known in the R community for the modern twitter package rtweet, has come up with a new R packaged called textfeatures that basically generates a bunch of features for any text data that you supply. Before you dream of Deep Learning based Package for Automated Text Feature Engineering, This isn’t that. This uses very simple Text Analysis principles and generates features like Number of Upper Case letters, Number of Punctuations – plain simple stuff and nothing fancy but pretty useful ones.

It’s a start for text analysis, though there’s a lot more after this.

Bias Correction In Standard Deviation Estimates

John Mount explains how to perform bias correction and explains why it happens so rarely in practice: The bias in question is falling off at a rate of 1/n (where n is our sample size). So the bias issue loses what little gravity it ever may have ever had when working with big data. Most sources of noise will […]
