Text Analysis Working Group: Applied Word Embeddings

June 5, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Scholarly Innovation Lab, Charles E. Young Research Library + Google Map

In our last meeting, workshop presenter, Alina Arseniev-Koehler, generously made all of her workshop materials available at her GitHub site: https://github.com/arsena-k/Word2Vec-bias-extraction.

The specific Jupyter notebook she shared in this workshop is available at https://github.com/arsena-k/Word2Vec-bias-extraction/blob/master/Part_A_W2V_training_performance_exploring.ipynb.

Our next meeting will be Wednesday, June 5 between 1:00 and 2:00pm in the SIL. We will continue our conversation about word embeddings and experiment with their practical application in our next meeting. In the meantime, feel free to begin playing with the code on your own.

For inspiration: Lik Teng Ung, one of our DH undergraduate students, used Word2Vec to explore the rhetoric surrounding the 1782 massacre of peaceful Moravian Christian Native Americans at Gnadenhutten, OH.

His code is available at
