has the advantage of precision — it’s useful in keyword search, for instance, if you know the document you want, and you know its exact title.
The key insight, made at the beginning of the information age, is to replace word meaning with something that machines can actually measure.

These vectors live in a very high dimensional vector space, but we can use dimension reduction to make this representation more robust andtractable.
