Mar 10, 2011 Large Scale Image Annotation: Learning to Rank with Joint Word-Image Embeddings

Mar 10, 2011 Building resources to syntactically parse the web
Posted by Slav Petrov and Ryan McDonald, Research Team One major hurdle in organizing the world’s information is building computer systems that can understand natural, or human, language.
