# average_word_embeddings_levy_dependency
This is a [sentence-transformers](https://www.SBERT.net) model: It maps sentences & paragraphs to a 300 dimensional dense vector space and can be used for tasks like clustering or semantic search.
## Usage (Sentence-Transformers)
Using this model becomes easy when you have [sentence-transformers](https://www.SBERT.net) installed:
```
pip install -U sentence-transformers
```
Then you can use the model like this:
```python
from sentence_transformers import SentenceTransformer
sentences = ["This is an example sentence", "Each sentence is converted"]
model = SentenceTransformer('sentence-transformers/average_word_embeddings_levy_dependency')
embeddings = model.encode(sentences)
print(embeddings)
```
## Evaluation Results
For an automated evaluation of this model, see the *Sentence Embeddings Benchmark*: [https://seb.sbert.net](https://seb.sbert.net?model_name=sentence-transformers/average_word_embeddings_levy_dependency)
