Introduction to Word2Vec & How it Works

Introduction to Word2Vec & How it Works

In this post, I will be giving the readers an Introduction to Word2Vec. We will first see What are Vector Space Models and then we will dive into Word Embeddings. The aim of this post is to understand Word2Vec model which is a neural word embedding model which has become very popular in recent time. So let’s get started.

It’s been a long time since I was introduced to the Gradient Descent algorithm. Basically, gradient descent is an algorithm in optimization theory which helps us find out the most optimal solution to a function. It is based on a simple idea, rather than finding out the best solution to a problem immediately, move in the direction that seems to take us to the optimal solution. I have made a small list of philosophical thoughts that compare Gradient Descent to real life struggles.
