Learning word representations with deep learning
This event took place on Wednesday 04 October 2017 at 11:30

Learning word representations from unsupervised methods has been recently extensively explored. However the studied methods have been limited to methods based on co-occurrence statistics or windowed bag-of-word shallow neural networks. These methods are usually so computationally efficient that they can be trained with huge corpora that may contain billions of tokens. These bag-of-word models however do not utilise the structural nature of languages for their inferences. We hypothesise that by using structural architectures, specifically recurrent neural networks, derived word representations contain properties learned from the preserved sequential nature of the inputs.

We are also inviting top experts in AI and Knowledge Technologies to discuss major socio-technological topics with an audience that comprises both members of the Knowledge Media Institute, as well as the wider staff at The Open University. Differently from our seminar series, these events follow a Q&A format.
