In this study, empirical prior Dirichlet allocation (epLDA) model that uses latent semantic indexing framework to derive the priors required for topics computation from data is presented. The parameters of the priors so obtained are related to the parameters of the conventional LDA model using exponential function. The model was implemented and tested with benchmarked data and it achieves a prediction accuracy of 92.15%. It was observed that the epLDA model consistently outperforms the conventional LDA model on different datasets with an average percentage accuracy of 6.33%; this clearly demonstrates the advantage of using side information obtained from data for the computation of the mixture components.
