What Is Word2Vec?

You shall know a word by the company it keeps (Firth, J. R. 1957:11)

The idea behind Word2Vec is relatively straight forward in that it is assumes that the meaning of a word can be inferred by the company it keeps.

There are two types of Word2Vec, Skip-gram and Continuous Bag of Words (CBOW). Word2Vec takes 'raw' text as input and learns a word by predicting its surrounding context (in the case of the skip-gram model) or predict a word given its surrounding context (in the case of the cBoW model) using gradient descent with randomly initialized vectors.

NOTE: Eventcurrently supports Continuous Bag of Words (CBOW) with Skip-gram coming soon. Please contact us if you have an immediate Skip-gram requirement.

Use Cases

The EventWord2Vec service can be used to surface similar concepts, find unrelated concepts, compute similarity between two words, and more. Having real-time industry corpuses always available means that current trends and topics can be extracted as well as providing product focused integrations for tasks such as SEO, automate customer-facing experiences, as supporting content creatives across agencies and journalism.


The following industries are supported by the EventWord2Vec service:
