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.
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.
Playing with it all
Two tutorials are available from the documents/ folder, which you can follow using the provided code.
