# Distributional Word Model Training Algorithm

A Distributional Word Model Training Algorithm is a distributional model training algorithm that can be implemented into a distributional word model training system (to solve a distributional word model training task).

**AKA:**Distributional Word Representation Algorithm.**Context:**- It can range from being a Continuous Distributional Word Model Training Algorithm to being a Discrete Distributional Word Model Training Algorithm.
- It can range from being a Sparse Distributional Word Model Training Algorithm to being a Dense Distributional Word Model Training Algorithm.

**Example(s):****Counter-Example(s):****See:**Embedding Algorithm, SGNS Algorithm, Word Embeddings.

- QUOTE: A goal of statistical language modeling is to learn the joint probability function of sequences of words in a language. This is intrinsically difficult because of the
**curse of dimensionality**: a word sequence on which the model will be tested is likely to be different from all the word sequences seen during training. Traditional but very successful approaches based on n-grams obtain generalization by concatenating very short overlapping sequences seen in the training set. We propose to fight the curse of dimensionality by**learning a distributed representation for words**which allows each training sentence to inform the model about an exponential number of semantically neighboring sentences.

- QUOTE: Concepts can be represented by distributed patterns of activity in networks of neuron-like units. One advantage of this kind of representation is that it leads to automatic generalization.
