Understanding word embeddings (and how bias arises)

If you are feeling unsure about word embeddings, like Word2Vec and GloVe, as covered in Lesson 5, I recently led a workshop on the topic. I also demo-ed how gender and racial biases are encoded in word embeddings, the impact of that, and potential solutions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=25nC0n9ERq4

The workshop was for a more general audience than this course, so it’s at a slower pace and includes lots of examples.
