Lecture on Distributional Semantics in Helsinki

This Fall I have had the pleasure to give a two part lecture to kick off a pilot edition of a course on Distributional Semantics in Helsinki, mostly for computational linguistics students.

Slides from the first lecture day, Friday the 13th of November, on distributional semantics, learning machines, representations, and some lab tasks.

Slides from the second lecture day, Friday the 11th of December, on evaluation, some comparison with neural inspired models, and some outstanding research questions.
