Problems With Evaluation of Word Embeddings Using Word Similarity Tasks

WS 2016 Manaal FaruquiYulia TsvetkovPushpendre RastogiChris Dyer

Lacking standardized extrinsic evaluation methods for vector representations of words, the NLP community has relied heavily on word similarity tasks as a proxy for intrinsic evaluation of word vectors. Word similarity evaluation, which correlates the distance between vectors and human judgments of semantic similarity is attractive, because it is computationally inexpensive and fast... (read more)
