jtatria/wspaces: Construction and analysis of semantic space models

A package for the construction of distributional semantic models, developed with a focus on speed and modularity. Provides an R interface to a Lucene index for the compilation of distributional information, a set of standards for the construction and manipulation of lexical datasets, facilities for diachronic analysis across corpus partitions from provenance meta-data, and numerical procedures for the production of semantic network and vector space models. Computationally intense operations are coded in C++ using Rcpp, following a standard interface to allow different computing back-ends in order to take advantage of parallel computation (using RcppParallel) or GPU processing (using CUDA/OpenCL) where available. The focus on speed facilitates rapid iteration for exploratory analyses of different models' parameter spaces.
