2018 International Journal of Computer Applications  
This paper presents a Convolutional Neural Network CNN Models to classify Arabic sentences into three topics. These sentences are derived from Essex Arabic Summaries Corpus (EASC) corpus, tokenized to words and transformed to sequences of word indices. All sequences are padded to be in the same length. The models of Convolution Neural Network are built on top of word embedding layer. The word embedding layer is either pre-trained or jointed into the model. Dropout and l2 weight regularization
