Distributional semantics: a very light tutorial

This is a light tutorial in distributional semantics. You will find some slides from my lectures, a bibliography, and also two hands-on practicals in the documents/ directory.

Useful reading

A very simple introduction to distributional semantics is available here. If you are interested in a more technical and comprehensive introduction, check out the papers by Turney and Pantel (2010) or Clark (2012). If you are hooked... have a look at the bibliography in the documents/ directory.

Install the build dependencies

I recommend using pip for installation:

`pip install -r requirements.txt`

On Ubuntu, you may have to run this first:

`sudo apt-get install libblas-dev liblapack-dev`

Alternatively, you can also look in requirements.txt and install dependencies manually.
