What are they Researching? Examining Industry-Based Doctoral Dissertation Research through the Lens of Machine Learning

Abstract:This paper examines industry-based doctoral dissertation research in a professional computing doctoral program for full time working professionals through the lens of different machine learning algorithms to understand topics explored by full time working industry professionals. This research paper examines machine learning algorithms and the IBM Watson Discovery machine learning tool to categorize dissertation research topics defended at Pace University. The research provides insights into differences in machine learning algorithm categorization using natural language processing.
