Word Representation in Natural Language Processing (Seconda Parte)

Natural Language Processing

Word Vectors and Beyond…🧐 In the prima parte of our introduction to word representations, we discussed the most basic type of representation: frequency probability. While this approach continues to be used in NLP projects requiring low semantic inference, more often than not, mission-critical projects may be dependent on word meaning. Natural language, as a complex…
