A New Context-Based Sentence Embedding and the Semantic Similarity of Sentences

Dinh-Minh Vu, Thanh-Trung Trinh, and Masaomi Kimura
Abstract—Calculating semantic similarity between sentences is a difficult task for computers due to the complex structure and syntax of a sentence. Typically, in order to represent a sentence, there are numerous significant characteristics which need to be alternatively considered, for example, ambiguity, words’ order, the context of sentences, etc. Various methods have been proposed to construct a language model for computing the similarity, such as average words embedding or sentence embedding based on auto-encoder architecture. However, these methods usually focus on the sentence and skip the influence of the previous sentences. In the paper, we introduce a novel approach to transform from sentences with context to embedding vectors based on auto-encoder architecture. Experiment results showed that the proposed method could find a better result for estimating similarity sentences in a certain scenario.

Index Terms—Semantic similarity, word embedding, sentence embedding, language model, auto-encoder.
