Coherence Regularization for Neural Topic Models

Neural topic models aim to predict the words of a document given the document itself. In such models, perplexity is used as a training criterion, whereas the final quality measure is topic coherence. In this work, we introduce a coherence regularization loss that penalizes incoherent topics during the training of the model. We analyze our approach using coherence and an additional metric – exclusivity, responsible for the uniqueness of the terms in topics. We argue that this combination of metrics is an adequate indicator of the model quality. Our results indicate the effectiveness of our loss and the potential to be used in the future neural topic models.

The paper will be published at the 16th International Symposium on Neural Networks taking place in Moscow. In the meantime, do not hesitate to contact our R&D department at research@euranova.eu to discuss how you can leverage neural topic models in your projects.
