## 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.
