Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Statistics
  • Machine learning

His primary scientific interests are in Artificial intelligence, Inference, Topic model, Machine learning and Latent Dirichlet allocation. The various areas that David M. Blei examines in his Artificial intelligence study include Class, Pattern recognition and Natural language processing. His Inference research includes elements of Probabilistic logic, Theoretical computer science, Latent variable and Bayesian inference.

He interconnects Open source software and Bayesian probability in the investigation of issues within Topic model. His Machine learning study incorporates themes from Structure, Pachinko allocation, Prior probability and Bayes' theorem. In general Latent Dirichlet allocation, his work in Dynamic topic model is often linked to Online learning linking many areas of study.

His most cited work include:

  • Latent dirichlet allocation (24198 citations)
  • Hierarchical Dirichlet Processes (2938 citations)
  • Probabilistic topic models (2866 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His main research concerns Artificial intelligence, Inference, Machine learning, Topic model and Probabilistic logic. His Artificial intelligence research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Natural language processing and Pattern recognition. His Inference research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Theoretical computer science, Bayesian probability, Bayesian inference, Mathematical optimization and Applied mathematics.

The concepts of his Machine learning study are interwoven with issues in Mixture model, Poisson distribution and Frequentist inference. The Topic model study combines topics in areas such as Data mining and Data science. David M. Blei is studying Dynamic topic model, which is a component of Latent Dirichlet allocation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Artificial intelligence (43.88%)
  • Inference (41.76%)
  • Machine learning (26.06%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Artificial intelligence (43.88%)
  • Inference (41.76%)
  • Machine learning (26.06%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His scientific interests lie mostly in Artificial intelligence, Inference, Machine learning, Causal inference and Econometrics. His Artificial intelligence study combines topics in areas such as Pattern recognition and Natural language processing. David M. Blei focuses mostly in the field of Natural language processing, narrowing it down to topics relating to Word and, in certain cases, Topic model.

While the research belongs to areas of Topic model, David M. Blei spends his time largely on the problem of Embedding, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Categorical distribution, Latent Dirichlet allocation and Generative model. His Inference research incorporates elements of Counterfactual thinking, Stochastic gradient descent, Mathematical optimization and Bayesian probability. His Machine learning study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Resampling and Heuristics.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Frequentist Consistency of Variational Bayes (86 citations)
  • Dynamic Embeddings for Language Evolution (82 citations)
  • Avoiding Latent Variable Collapse with Generative Skip Models (67 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Statistics
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Machine learning

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Artificial intelligence, Machine learning, Observational study, Causal inference and Natural language processing. His study on Artificial intelligence is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Pattern recognition. His work deals with themes such as Context, Inference, Bayes' theorem and Bayesian inference, which intersect with Machine learning.

His study in Observational study is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Outcome and Confounding. As a part of the same scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Natural language processing, focusing on Word and, on occasion, Latent Dirichlet allocation, Categorical distribution, Embedding and Topic model. His studies in Word embedding integrate themes in fields like Generative model, Dynamic topic model and Stop words.
