What is this?
This is an implementation of GloVe (Global Vectors for Word Representation), a model for learning vector representations of words. The model was originally developed by Jeffery Pennington, Richard Socher, and Christopher Manning.
This is my implementation of their model in TensorFlow, a "library for numerical computation using data flow graphs" by Google.
How do I use it?
>>> import tf_glove >>> model = tf_glove.GloVeModel(embedding_size=300, context_size=10) >>> model.fit_to_corpus(corpus) >>> model.train(num_epochs=100) >>> model.embedding_for("reddit") array([ 0.77469945, 0.06020461, 0.37193006, -0.44537717, ... 0.29987332, -0.12688215,], dtype=float32) >>> model.generate_tsne()
For a more complete introduction, see the Getting Started notebook.
Naturally, most of the credit goes to Jeffery Pennington, Richard Socher, and Christopher Manning, who developed the model, published a paper about it, and released an implementation in C.
Thanks also to Jon Gauthier (@hans), who wrote a Python implementation of the model and a blog post describing that implementation, which were both very useful references as well.
