- Despite these difficulties, there are notable applications of unsupervised learning. Pre-trained word vectors are a vi tal part of many modern NLP systems (Collobert et al.,2011).
Unsupervised learning is promising due to its ability to scale beyond only the subsets and domains of data that can be cleaned and labeled given resource, pri-vacy, or other constraints. This advantage is also its difficulty. While supervised approaches have clear objectivesthat can be directly optimized, unsupervised approaches rely on proxy tasks such as reconstruction, density estimation, or generation, which do not directly encourage useful representations for specific tasks.
