Implementing Poincaré Embeddings

Jayant Jain gensim, Open Source 6 Comments

I have been working on implementing a model called Poincaré embeddings over the last month or so. The model is from an interesting paper by Facebook AI Research – Poincaré Embeddings for Learning Hierarchical Representations [1]. This post describes the model at a relatively high level of abstraction, and the detailed technical challenges faced in the process of implementing it.
