Better Vector-Space Models

Background reading:

Thomas Landauer, Peter Foltz, and Darrell Laham, "An Introduction to Latent Semantic Analysis", Discourse Processes 1998

Check out the LSA Website for some interactive demos.

Lyle Ungar, "A vector space model of semantics using Canonical Correlation Analysis", 2013

Catherine Havasi et al., "Digital Intuition: Applying Common Sense Using Dimensionality Reduction", IEEE Intelligent Systems 2009. The basic dataset is described (and downloadable) here, and a recent application example is here.

If you're feeling adventurous, take a look at the "Introduction to subspace methods" page from COGS501.
