报告摘要： As one of the most popular social media, Twitter has attracted interests of business and academics to derive topics and apply the outcomes in a wide range of applications such as emergency management, business advertisements, and corporate/government communication. Since tweets are short messages, topic derivation from tweets becomes a big challenge in the area. Most of existing works use the Twitter content as the only source in the topic derivation. Recently, tweet interactions have been considered additionally for improving the quality of topic derivation. In this talk, we introduce a method that incorporates social interactions such as mention, retweet, etc into twitter content to derive topics. Experimental results show that the proposed method with the inclusion of temporal features results in a significant improvement in the quality of topic derivation comparing to existing baseline methods. In this talk, we will explain the general idea of Matrix Factorisation and how it is applied in topic derivation, the experiment set up, and experiment results analysis.
