MA-sLDAr -- Multi-Annotator Supervised LDA for regression

MA-sLDAr is a C++ implementation of the supervised topic models with response variables provided by multiple annotators with different levels of expertise, as proposed in:

A version of this model for classification tasks is available here.

Sample multiple-annotator data using the MovieReviews dataset is provided here. More datasets are available here.

Compiling

Type "make" in a shell.

Please note that this code requires the Gnu Scientific Library, http://www.gnu.org/software/gsl/

Estimation

Usage:

./maslda est [data] [answers] [settings] [alpha] [tau] [k] [random/seeded/model_path] [seed] [directory]

Data format:

  • [data] is a file where each line is of the form: [M] [term_1]:[count] [term_2]:[count] ... [term_N]:[count], where [M] is the number of unique terms in the document, and the [count] associated with each term is how many times that term appeared in the document.
  • [answers] is a file where each line contains the target/response variable of the different annotators (separated by a white space) for [data]. Each column therefore corresponds to all the answers of an annotator.

Example:

./maslda est ../MovieReviews/data_train_amt.txt ../MovieReviews/answers.txt settings.txt 1 0.1 20 random 1 output

Inference

Usage:

./maslda inf [data] [label] [settings] [model] [directory]

Data format:

  • [label] is a file where each line is the corresponding true target/response variable for [data].

Example:

./maslda inf ../MovieReviews/data_test.txt ../MovieReviews/labels_test.txt settings.txt output/final.model output

Settings

The settings file specifies the following parameters:

  • "L2 penalty" controls the strength of the L2 regularization.
  • "labels train file" is a file with the true target variables for the training documents. If a valid file is provided, it will be use to compute and report error statistics during the model estimation.
  • "annotators quality file" is a file with the true biases and variances of the multiple annotators. If a valid file is provided, it will be use to compute and report error statistics during the model estimation.
  • "lambda smoother" defines the values of the laplace smoothers used when estimating pi and lambda respectively.
