Abstract: Many text documents naturally have two kinds of labels. For example, we may label web pages from universities according to their categories, such as "student" or "faculty", or according the source universities, such as "Cornell" or "Texas". We call one kind of labels the content and the other kind the style. Given a set of documents, each with both content and style labels, we seek to effectively learn to classify a set of documents in a new style with no content labels into its content classes. Assuming that every document is generated using words drawn from a mixture of two multinomial component models, one content model and one style model, we propose a method named Cartesian EM that constructs content models and style models through Expectation Maximization and performs classification of the unknown content classes transductively. Our experiments on real-world datasets show the proposed method to be effective for style independent text content classification. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2006.
