Exploring the many uses of embedding based textual similarity
I will be showing how representing text/words as relatively low dimensional vecotrs (300 dimensions) "latent semantic" space allows for similarity identification beyond the matching of exact words and how this can be used to aid in the cold start problem for recommandation as well as grouping related content, generating document tags, and matching content across all our content domains (streaming, TV news channel, tv2.no content)
