Gensim - Python Framework for Vector Space Modelling

Gensim is a Python library for Vector Space Modelling with very large corpora. Target audience is the Natural Language Processing (NLP) community.


  • All algorithms are memory-independent w.r.t. the corpus size (can process input larger than RAM),

  • Intuitive interfaces

  • easy to plug in your own input corpus/datastream (trivial streaming API)

  • easy to extend with other Vector Space algorithms (trivial transformation API)

  • Efficient implementations of popular algorithms, such as online Latent Semantic Analysis, Latent Dirichlet Allocation or Random Projections

  • Distributed computing: can run Latent Semantic Analysis and Latent Dirichlet Allocation on a cluster of computers.

  • extensive documentation and tutorials

Reference example

>>> from gensim import corpora, models, similarities
>>> # load corpus iterator from a Matrix Market file on disk
>>> corpus = corpora.MmCorpus('/path/to/')
>>> # initialize a transformation (Latent Semantic Indexing with 200 latent dimensions)
>>> lsi = models.LsiModel(corpus, numTopics=200)
>>> # convert the same corpus to latent space and index it
>>> index = similarities.MatrixSimilarity(lsi[corpus])
>>> # perform similarity query of another vector in LSI space against the whole corpus
>>> sims = index[query]
Changes to previous version:
  • optimizations to Latent Dirichlet Allocation (online LDA): 100 topics on the English Wikipedia (3.2M documents, 100K features, 0.5G non-zeros) now take 11h on a laptop.
  • optimizations to Latent Semantic Analysis (single pass SVD): 400 factors on the English Wikipedia take 5.25h.
  • distributed LDA and LSA over a cluster of machines.
  • moved code to github, opened discussion group on Google groups
