New download API for pretrained NLP models and datasets in Gensim

Chaitali Saini Datasets, gensim, Open Source, Student Incubator 3 Comments

There’s no shortage of websites and repositories that aggregate various machine learning datasets and pre-trained models (Kaggle, UCI MLR, DeepDive, individual repos like gloVe, FastText, Quora, blogs, individual university pages…). The only problem is, they all use widely different formats, cover widely different use-cases and go out of service with worrying regularity. For this reason, we decided to include free …

WordRank embedding: “crowned” is most similar to “king”, not word2vec’s “Canute”

Parul Sethi gensim, Student Incubator

Comparisons to Word2Vec and FastText with TensorBoard visualizations. With various embedding models coming up recently, it could be a difficult task to choose one. Should you simply go with the ones widely used in NLP community such as Word2Vec, or is it possible that some other model could be more accurate for your use case? There are some evaluation metrics …


FastText and Gensim word embeddings

Jayant Jain gensim

Facebook Research open sourced a great project recently – fastText, a fast (no surprise) and effective method to learn word representations and perform text classification. I was curious about comparing these embeddings to other commonly used embeddings, so word2vec seemed like the obvious choice, especially considering fastText embeddings are an extension of word2vec. The main goal of the Fast Text …
