I am trying to implement a recurrent neural network machine translation system, and I am just learning the things.

I am creating a word embedding matrix. In order to do that, I should know my vocabulary size, dimension of the embedding space, and context window size?

What is context window?


1 Answer 1


A context window applies to the number of words you will use to determine the context of each word. Like of your statement is "the quick brown fox" a context window of two would mean your samples are like (the,quick) and ( the, brown). Then you slide one word and your samples become (quick, the ), (quick, brown) and (quick fox) and so on. I would suggest reading up this word 2vec tutorial to understand the training method and terminology.
