Neural Network Machine Learning for NLP

Last week, we updated package ruimtehol on CRAN. The package provides an easy interface for R users to Starspace which is a general purpose neural embedding model for text data.

Notable changes are that the package now also builds fine on Mac OS and runs fine on all CRAN platforms. If you are interested to see what the package can do, have a look at the presentation below or visit the package vignette at
