# Sew-Embed at SemEval-2017 Task 2: Language-Independent Concept Representations from a Semantically Enriched Wikipedia

Claudio Delli BoviAless Raganatoro

This paper describes Sew-Embed, our language-independent approach to multilingual and cross-lingual semantic word similarity as part of the SemEval-2017 Task 2. We leverage the Wikipedia-based concept representations developed by Raganato et al. (2016), and propose an embedded augmentation of their explicit high-dimensional vectors, which we obtain by plugging in an arbitrary word (or sense) embedding representation, and computing a weighted average in the continuous vector space...
