The School of Linguistics was founded in December 2014. Today, the School offers undergraduate and graduate programs in theoretical and computational linguistics. Linguistics as it is taught and researched at the School does not simply involve mastering foreign languages. Rather, it is the science of language and the methods of its modeling. Research groups in the School of Linguistics study typology, socio-linguistics and areal linguistics, corpus linguistics and lexicography, ancient languages and the history of languages. The School is also developing linguistic technologies and electronic resources: corpora, training simulators, dictionaries, thesauruses, and tools for digital storage and processing of written texts.

Frameworks and algorithms for training word embedding models (word2vec, GloVe , fasttext and others) have revolutionized NLP in recent years. These approaches enable computers to learn the actual meaning of words based on their co-occurrence statistics calculated on large text corpora. With RusVectōrēs one can try out the distributional semantics models trained on various corpora for the Russian language. Alternatively, one can download them to work locally on his/her own machine.
To walk the user through our web service, we prepared a screencast with the brief explanation of the main features (in Russian):
RusVectōrēs can be used to explore the possibilities of distributional semantics, to promptly check linguistic hypotheses, or as a classroom tool.
In 2016, the service has improved in the following ways:
We have many plans for improving RusVectōrēs. Subscribe to our RSS feed and stay tuned!
