Subject Re: mahout tf-idf vs lucene tf-idf
Date Mon, 06 Jun 2016 17:02:27 GMT
to add to Ted's reply, mahout has traditionally offered a bigram/trigram
analysis as a part of its tf-idf conversion (a step away from the bag of
words model so that directional statistically stable combinations of 2 or 3
words are reduced to their own term). However, this has not been ported to
spark/h20/flink engines, and is available as a mapreduce legacy algorithm
