How machines learn the meaning of words

April 2020

Machine Learning (“AI”) is sold as a solution to filter hate from the Internet. This website explains how computers learn the meanings of words with machine learning.

The website also includes some more experimental visualizations about how words have changed their meaning in the past 10 years. This was done on on 13 million German news comments using a natural language processing technique.

The work was funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research as part of the Prototype Fund.
