# Can we compare a word2vec vector with a doc2vec vector?

I have set of categories and I want to compare a document vector with word vector of categories to find best matching category.

Is it possible to compare a word vector with document vector? If yes, is there any literature which gives proof of concept for this?

• @Vishwa: Its based on distributional hypothesis. The semantic meaning of a word is conveyed by its surrounding context words. For more detail read the original paper, Distributed Representations of Words and Phrases and their Compositionality by Thomas Mikolov et al. – chmodsss Sep 9 '16 at 18:58
