TF-IDF computation in PySpark
from pyspark.mllib.feature import HashingTF, IDF
# Load documents (one per line).
documents = sc.textFile("data/mllib/kmeans_data.txt").map(lambda line: line.split(" "))
hashingTF = HashingTF()
tf = hashingTF.transform(documents)
# While applying HashingTF only needs a single pass to the data, applying IDF needs two passes:
# First to compute the IDF vector and second to scale the term frequencies by IDF.
idf = IDF().fit(tf)
tfidf = idf.transform(tf)
# spark.mllib's IDF implementation provides an option for ignoring terms
# which occur in less than a minimum number of documents.
# In such cases, the IDF for these terms is set to 0.
# This feature can be used by passing the minDocFreq value to the IDF constructor.
idfIgnore = IDF(minDocFreq=2).fit(tf)
tfidfIgnore = idfIgnore.transform(tf)
