Stockholm Natural Language Processing Meetup

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, 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.
