Project: Algolit

Playing out words to numbers

Algolit, the workgroup around FLOSS literature and code, will organise a meeting on word embeddings. A few Algolit members will present physical scores that we try to play out, in order to fully understand one of the techniques used in machine learning to turn text into numbers and make the machine capable of ’counting’.

There is no need for programming knowledge, but if you have it, you’re of course very welcome as well. The idea is to offer different entrances into the field of algorithmic writing, using snippets out of the process of machine learning models. Each recipe will be contextualized and the results will be documented at the end of the day.
