Why the transpose of embedding matrix is used for computing PCA?

(Pete Condon) #24

I assumed that the likes were ironic (including mine)

(yinterian) #25

Take a careful look the formula.

(James Dietle) #26

“Tank girl” is dialog driven?

Could it be how surreal or satiric the movies are? But then where is Momento?

(Kevin Bird) #27

Where is that formula located?

(yinterian) #28

forward function inside the class.

(ecdrid) #29

From the fellows who had done this course previously(this helps a lot)

(Kevin Bird) #30

I’ll make a forum post. I’m still a bit confused.

(yinterian) #31

no, look at the collaborative filtering model. Here

``````class EmbeddingDotBias(nn.Module):
def __init__(self, n_factors, n_users, n_items, min_score, max_score):
super().__init__()
self.min_score,self.max_score = min_score,max_score
(self.u, self.i, self.ub, self.ib) = [get_emb(*o) for o in [
(n_users, n_factors), (n_items, n_factors), (n_users,1), (n_items,1)
]]

def forward(self, users, items):
um = self.u(users)* self.i(items)
res = um.sum(1) + self.ub(users).squeeze() + self.ib(items).squeeze()
return F.sigmoid(res) * (self.max_score-self.min_score) + self.min_score
``````

what would be the difference between shallow embedding and deep learning embedding ?

• shallow : get through s dot product matrix multiplication
• deep learning: initiate several layers on the top of a one-hot encoding or any other classic categorical encoding
is it something like this?

(K Sreelakshmi) #33

Is Shallow learning on large datasets in NLP is faster to get Embeddings than doing a NeuralNet first on?

#34

What was the last question? Didn’t hear it

(Erin Pangilinan) #35

(Ankit Goila) #36

I think related to this:

(Pete Condon) #37

I thought it was a question about using transfer learning for NLP (like is done in vision)

(Louis Guthmann) #38

When using categories in Pandas, how to keep the same mapping between the train and test if they are not merged in the first place ?

(Arjun Rajkumar) #39

In Rossmann - what is y_range?

(ecdrid) #40

Check out Imputer from the docs

(Erin Pangilinan) #41

Correct. I was saying that he was replying with that.
