What is Trajectory?

Trajectory is a research framework designed to explore the application of Topic Modeling to textual university curriculum data, specifically course descriptions. Automatically extracting content from this corpus allows for larger-scale analysis of university curricula than would be possible with manual inspection.

What is topic modeling?

In machine learning and natural language processing, a topic model is a type of statistical model for discovering the abstract "topics" that occur in a collection of documents. Intuitively, given that a document is about a particular topic, one would expect particular words to appear in the document more or less frequently: "dog" and "bone" will appear more often in documents about dogs, "cat" and "meow" will appear in documents about cats, and "the" and "is" will appear equally in both.
