Latent Dirichlet Allocation (LDA)

A generative model that can find the latent topics contained in a document, where each topic is a distribution of words.

Level of funding

The value in pounds of a research project funded by UK research councils according to Gateway to Research data. It is important to note that funding data is only available at the project, rather than the organisation level. This means that whenever we mention funding in our research visualisations, we are referring to the funding awarded to projects led or involving Welsh organisations, rather than the amount of funding going to Wales.

Levenshtein Distance

Measures the difference between two string sequences. It calculates the number of insertions, deletions and substitutions that have to be made in order to change a word to another.
