In a collection of documents, such as news articles or tweets, various events take place over time. The event detection problem aims at discovering significant events that have not been mentioned before the detection time. When these events occur, we observe that topic distributions of documents will diverge notably. However, event detection from such(More)
We propose a generic stochastic expectationmaximization (EM) algorithm for the estimation of high-dimensional latent variable models. At the core of our algorithm is a novel semi-stochastic variance-reduced gradient designed for the Qfunction in the EM algorithm. Under a mild condition on the initialization, our algorithm is guaranteed to attain a linear(More)
