Wow, this is a cool little experiment that maps a word-vector space to a text adventure space that you walk around in.
cc @aparrish obviously
@darius yeah this is rad! I wonder what they used for nearest-neighbor lookups...
@aparrish I'm guessing just returning the top cosine-similarity results?
@darius probably but I feel like brute-forcing that would take more time to compute with 358k 25d vectors?
@aparrish @darius I had a dig through the code, and I think they are just brute-forcing it. explains why it's only 25d
@mewo2 @aparrish lol I literally just did this too and came to the same conclusion
