Unsupervised Learning and Word Embeddings

The field of Machine Learning can be divided into two main branches – supervised and unsupervised learning. While examples for applications of supervised learning are easy to come by, the power of unsupervised learning is less intuitive. In this talk, we will use the problem of representing words as a case study. The limitations of simple one-hot encoding will be discussed before describing the modern method of embedding words in a vector space of real numbers. After comparing several approaches, current advances and future challenges will be discussed.
