  22. 22. #pubcon LSA Latent Semantic Analysis Bag of words. Count based models. It finds words mentioned but not really the meaning. So we might see Hogwarts related to Harry Potter, but not see it as a school for higher learning.
  23. 23. #pubcon TF-IDF Term Frequency – Inverse Document Frequency Frequency of a term within a document divided by its frequency in the entire corpus How important a word is in a document or collection of documents.
  24. 24. #pubcon WDF*IDF Within Document Frequency - Inverse Document Frequency This is basically keyword density 2.0 with a correction value and weighted across a set of documents.
  25. 25. #pubcon BM25 Like TF-IDF but takes into account document length. Used by Common Search (building a nonprofit search engine) https://about.commonsearch.org/
  26. 26. #pubcon N-grams Unigram, bigram, trigram, four-gram, five-gram. Basically co-occurring words and phrases.
  27. 27. #pubcon Word2Vec Predictive instead of count based. Tries to predict source context-words from the target words. One word predicts a nearby word.
