no code implementations2 Feb 2017 Colin Allen, Hongliang Luo, Jaimie Murdock, Jianghuai Pu, XiaoHong Wang, Yanjie Zhai, Kun Zhao

In this paper we describe a collaborative effort between Indiana University and Xi'an Jiaotong University to support exploration and interpretation of a digital corpus of over 18, 000 ancient Chinese documents, which we refer to as the "Handian" ancient classics corpus (H\`an di\u{a}n g\u{u} j\'i, i. e, the "Han canon" or "Chinese classics").


Towards Evaluation of Cultural-scale Claims in Light of Topic Model Sampling Effects

no code implementations15 Dec 2015 Jaimie Murdock, Jiaan Zeng, Colin Allen

We find that sample models with a large sample size typically have an alignment distance that falls in the range of the alignment distance between spanning models.
