Neural Text Modelling with R package ruimtehol

Share Tweet

Last week the R package ruimtehol was released on CRAN (https://github.com/bnosac/ruimtehol) allowing R users to easily build and apply neural embedding models on text data.

It wraps the ‘StarSpace’ library ">https://github.com/facebookresearch/StarSpace allowing users to calculate word, sentence, article, document, webpage, link and entity ’embeddings’. By using the ’embeddings’, you can perform text based multi-label classification, find similarities between texts and categories, do collaborative-filtering based recommendation as well as content-based recommendation, find out relations between entities, calculate graph ’embeddings’ as well as perform semi-supervised learning and multi-task learning on plain text. The techniques are explained in detail in the paper: ‘StarSpace: Embed All The Things!’ by Wu et al. (2017), available at https://arxiv.org/abs/1709.03856.

You can get started with some common text analytical use cases by using the presentation we have built below. Enjoy!
