I am just interested to know if we can use the generated word embedding vectors to extract keywords from a document or not.

If yes, how?

Word embeddings are just a way to represent tokens (often words, but could be characters) in a way that it inherently carries semantic meaning (i.e. as opposed to simply one-hot encoding), but it is not a keyphrase extraction technique.

Word embeddings can help you extract key phrases better because they will make your input more meaningful, but unless you have a technique to extract such phrases, they won't help you.
