Word embeddings that change over time


How do words change their meaning over the years? How does semantic similarity between words develop over time? See for yourself, type in a few words in the text box above and click Show. The number in the upper-right corner changes as years go by.

Developed by Chiraag Lala and Shay Cohen (August, 2014).
