What is this page about?

This webpage contains three demo implementations of designs to explore and analyze word vector embeddings. They support exploring neighborhoods, projecting words onto concept axes, and viewing word co-occurrences reconstructed from the embedding model. You can get to each of the demos by clicking on the link in the navigation bar on top of this page. For more information about the implementations, the ideas behind them, and videos describing the interface and use cases, pleae visit our project webpage. Additional information is available in our paper presented at EuroVis 2018.

Download Embeddings

We provide 22 example embeddings in the right format, ready to use and explore with our implementations:

Cool! Can I use this for my own data?

If you are interested in analyzing your own embeddings, you can either directly work with our code available on GitHub. Alternatively, a docker image that runs the implementations on a web server is available. More information in how to set up and run the image is available here.


If you use our implementations or our code for your own project, please cite us as follows:
