Very interesting use of cui2vec.

Yes, incidentally we also used cui2vec as concatenated embeddings to the word embeddings (after the publication of the paper, so this wasn’t mentioned). While performance did increase, it didn’t by much so I haven’t performed any ANOVA etc for statistical significance. This might be because while the cui2vec dimensional is high, the vocabulary is somewhat limited compared to other embeddings, especially relative to the size of UMLS.

Hi @plandes, paper added to the repo. Really interesting work, thanks for letting us know.
