Today I visited Stockholm Natural Language Processing Meetup. This time hosted by Gavagai at Bondegatan 21, Södermalm in Stockholm. Sahar Asadi from Meltwater, organised everything. The topic today was “Word embedding: From theory to practice. Three speakers talked: Magnus Sahgren on “Distributional semantics at Gavaga”, Hendrik Heuer on “Word2vec from theory to practice and finally Jimmy Callin on “Distributional semantic models in practice”. During two hours we obtained a nice overview of the area and different approaches to perform different forms of distributional semantics. Please try http://lexicon.gavagai.se, it is fun.
As you maybe also know Dr. Maria Skeppstedt is post doc at Gavagai and Linnaeus University under supervision of Dr. Magnus Sahlgren. Everything funded by Vetenskapsrådet.
