Investigations into the use of Distributed Semantics for Cognate Detection and Computational Phylogenetics

Investigations into the use of Distributed Semantics for Cognate Detection and Computational Phylogenetics

Abstract

In this talk, I present my primary PhD contributions where different embeddings aid in the tasks of cognate detection, and computational phylogenetics. A set of unpublished results which show that cognates, indeed, help in the downstream task of machine translation were also shown.
