In the last years, a lot of researchers have invested time and resources into a new approach to Natural Language Processing: forget linguistic algorithms, let’s turn the words into mathematical vectors and plot them in a 3D space. Then, applying linear algebra, it allows us to perform specific tasks, such topic detection, sentiment analysis, etc. without even using a single code of pure linguistic algorithms. To nice to be true? Let’s discover the magic word of vectors using a very simple example.
