This study describes a method for constructing a causality model from text data, such as review data. Topic modeling is useful to find these evaluation factors from text data. The method based on hierarchical latent Dirichlet allocation is useful because it automatically constructs relationships among topics. However, the depth of each topic in a hierarchical structure is the same even if the contents differ for each topic. Accordingly, the method can generate less important topics that are not worth analyzing. To solve this problem, we construct a hierarchical topic structure with different depths and more important topics by using Bayesian rose trees. In the experiment, the values of the hyperparameters for constructing a hierarchical topic structure are estimated by using evaluation indexes for causal analysis. In addition, the experiment compares the proposed method with related approaches to demonstrate the usefulness of this model.
