Shape of Elephant: Study of Macro Properties of Word Embeddings Spaces [article]

Alexey Tikhonov
2021 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we demonstrate that a typical word embeddings cloud is shaped as a high-dimensional simplex with interpretable vertices and propose a simple yet effective method for enumeration of these  ...  Pre-trained word representations became a key component in many NLP tasks. However, the global geometry of the word embeddings remains poorly understood.  ...  Our experiments show that the word embeddings cloud has the shape of the n-dimensional simplex with the dense center and a bunch of interpretable vertices.  ...

Carolyn Mak, Mandeep Kaur Mucina, Renée Nichole Ferguson
2021 Advances in Social Work  
White supremacist ideology is the elephant in the social work classroom, negatively impacting educators' abilities to facilitate discussion and learning.  ...  In this conceptual piece, we use a Critical Race Theory (CRT) framework to understand how white supremacy perpetuates itself in the classroom, with a particular focus on whiteness as property.  ...  Harris (1993) posits that "whiteness shares the critical characteristics of property even as the meaning of property has changed over time.  ...

Size and shape measurement in contemporary cephalometrics

G. T. McIntyre
2003 European Journal of Orthodontics  
Because shape information cannot be determined from these 'size-based' measurements, an increasing number of studies employ geometric morphometric tools in the cephalometric analysis of craniofacial morphology  ...  The traditional method of analysing cephalograms-conventional cephalometric analysis (CCA)-involves the calculation of linear distance measurements, angular measurements, area measurements, and ratios.  ...  The basic principle involves embedding a set of closely spaced observed measurements on an object's boundary into a mathematical function.  ...

Narrative Versus Theory in the Sociology of Religion: Five Stories of Religion's Place in the Late Modern World [chapter]

James V. Spickard
2017 Theorising Religion  
Each of these approaches highlights part of the elephant. The blind men (and women) use such data to squabble about which aspect of that elephant is most real.  ...  McGuire's (1988) study of non-medical healing found a similar religious eclecticism, as did my own (unpublished) study of a liberal Episcopalian congregation and Roof's (1993) study of American Baby  ...

Human-elephant interactions: from past to present [article]

George E. Konidaris, Ran Barkai, Vangelis Tourloukis, Katerina Harvati, Universitaet Tuebingen
The nature and degree of interactions between humans and elephants comprises an important field in palaeoanthropological studies since decades, but many questions remain still unanswered or partially explored  ...  Many of them show strong evidence of acquisition and processing of proboscidean carcasses by early humans, leading scientists to interpret them as "elephant butchering sites".  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS We thank the organizers of the symposium "Human-elephant interactions: from past to present", an anonymous reviewer and G.  ...
