21.38 Word Distances

Continuous bag of words (CBOW). Word2Vec associates each word in a vocabulary with a unique vector of real numbers of length d. Words that have a similar syntactic context appear closer together within the vector space. The syntactic context is based on a set of words within a specific window size.
