Humans intuitively understand the meaning of words: Which words are similar, opposites or related to each other? But our machine learning models do not have this intuition. Word embeddings are numeric vectors that represent text. These vectors are learned through neural networks.

Also, they should be able to preserve mathematical relationships between words such as
