Improving Document Embedding Using Retrofitting
MSc Thesis Proposal by:  Zeeshan Mansoor
Date:  Monday, Jan 14th, 2019
Time: 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Location: 3105, Lambton Tower
Abstract: Data-driven learning of document vectors that capture linkage between them is of immense importance in the natural language processing (NLP). These document vectors can, in turn, beused for tasks like information retrieval, document classification, and clustering. Inherently, documents are linked together in the form of links or citations in case of web pages or academic papersrespectively. Methods like Paragraph Vector try to capture the semantic representation of the document using only the textual information. These methods ignore the network information altogether while learning the representation. Similarly, methods developed for network representation learning like Node2Vec or DeepWalk, capture the linkage information between the documents but they ignore the textual information altogether. In this thesis, we propose a method based on Retrofitting
word vectors using semantic lexicons for improving the word embeddings. The proposed method tries to incorporate both the textual and network information together by bringing citing documents closer together in the vector space.
