What is it about?
Topic Models forms the group of words semantically relevant to the specific subject or theme. So a topic is a set of words with their likelihood in that topic. It also finds the proportion of different topics in the document. This paper surveys the topic modeling in a variety of ways, including domain-specific, parallel settings, tools, and technology. It also discusses the research challenges and future directions.

Why is it important?
We have been experiencing information overload due to the ever-expanding usage of the Internet through different types of applications. One should understand such an enormous collection of information without going through them. We can discover the hidden topics from such a large collection using topic modeling in an unsupervised manner. It is indeed a novel idea if one could search the information based on the theme, instead of the keyword. The topic model provides a cluster of semantically relevant words to do so.
