1 Partha Ghosh, November 19, 2011 at 1:04 a.m.:

Extreme clarity in explaining the complex LDA concepts. What started as mythical, was clarified by the genius David Blei, an astounding teacher researcher. Simply superb!

2 Andrew Polar, November 23, 2011 at 5:44 p.m.:

Your concept is completely wrong. Topics are distributed differently, not as Dirichlet prior. The creator of document choose only 1 or 2 topics and rarely 3 topics when making document, while number of topics in collection could be a hundred. I can write document about environment and how U.S. Congress treats it, so it will be document on 2 topics. It may be more but with lower probability and it can't be 20 or 30.
The right model is 2 urns with colored balls. First urn has one ball of each color. User draw 1 or 2 balls from it. Then user use other urn with many balls of each color. User draw selected number of balls but ignores other than colors of selected from previous urn. Example: first urn has 1 red, 1 green, 1 blue, 1 yellow. I choose randomly red and green. The second urn has 1000 red, 1000 green, 1000 blue, 1000 yellow. I draw 10 ball but keep only red and green. Let say outcome is 7 red and 3 green, this is topic distribution. It is not Dirichlet process. This is how it works in real life.

3 Andrew Polar, November 23, 2011 at 5:58 p.m.:

I can also add that this model does not consider that some topics have no chances to be in one document. Show me the document speaking about marine mammals, linear algebra, crime rate in New York and tea ceremony in Japan at the same time. Two parameters, introduced in concept (alpha and beta) do not control topics to the required degree. Concept works and returns reasonable result because it is close to PLSA and PLSA is close to non-negative matrix factorization.

6 George, March 13, 2013 at 11:13 a.m.:

Is there any chance that the whole slides from this presentation are somewhere available? Especially by the end of the second video, some really important parts are left out due to time constraint

7 George, March 13, 2013 at 11:15 a.m.:

Please ignore the comment above.. next time i will check before i post ^^

8 Muthu Kumar C, June 7, 2013 at 1:17 a.m.:

Listen it once, you are a little distracted by the jokes and the notations. Second time, it is obvious.

9 Nikos Daniilidis, June 16, 2014 at 9:40 p.m.:

How did he get 0.33 at around 39 minutes? What does the n mean in Zd,n?

14 Anmol, November 21, 2016 at 8:25 a.m.:

Exactly! How did he git it as 0.33?

15 Neethu, December 29, 2016 at 8:07 a.m.:

To clarify the question asked for 0.33 at 39 minutes, he did not derive 0.33;he assumed the probability value in the graph for the example.

De la tête aux pieds, nos chirurgiens expérimentés peuvent mettre en place des procédures efficaces pour favoriser la pousse des cheveux. Les greffes de cheveux en Turquie sont nettement moins chères que dans d'autres pays ou régions, mais ont les mêmes résultats, ce qui en fait une valeur extrême.

60 Couronne dentaire en Turquie, July 5, 2022 at 12:54 p.m.:

Ce que vous devez savoir avant de suivre un traitement par couronne dentaire en Turquie : La Turquie est l'un des pays les plus développés dans le domaine de la dentisterie et est connue pour ses traitements dentaires de qualité et abordables. La Turquie est une option extrêmement abordable pour une couronne dentaire. Par rapport aux pays occidentaux, le coût des couronnes à Istanbul est nettement inférieur, en partie parce que la demande est élevée. Alors qu'en France, par exemple, vous payez 1000 euros pour une couronne, à Istanbul vous ne payez que 200 euros. Les cliniques dentaires en Turquie sont comparables aux hôtels 5 étoiles. Contrairement à ce qui se passe dans de nombreux pays européens, les cliniques sont entièrement équipées. Ils disposent de leurs propres appareils de radiographie et de leurs propres laboratoires dentaires, de sorte que les travaux tels que les implants, les couronnes, les facettes, etc. peuvent être réalisés rapidement et à moindre coût. Istanbul compte de nombreux excellents techniciens de laboratoire qui réalisent des empreintes de haute qualité, essentielles pour obtenir des dents d'aspect naturel et correctement ajustées. En général, une visite à Istanbul est suffisante pour le traitement d'une couronne dentaire. Il est donc facile de la combiner avec une visite touristique. Il est recommandé d'attendre au moins 2 jours. Dans la plupart des cas, le processus de guérison ne prend que quelques jours. Dans les premiers jours suivant le traitement, il est normal de ressentir une certaine sensibilité dans la bouche. Selon le matériau et l'hygiène buccale, la couronne dentaire dure en moyenne 10 ans.
