### Machine learning and training a computer-implemented neural network to retrieve semantically equivalent questions using hybrid in-memory representations

Determining semantically equivalent text or questions using hybrid representations based on neural network learning. Weighted bag-of-words and convolutional neural networks (CNN) based distributed vector representations of questions or text may be generated to compute the semantic similarity between questions or text. Weighted bag-of-words and CNN based distributed vector representations may be jointly used to compute the semantic similarity. A pair-wise ranking loss function trains neural network. In one embodiment, the parameters of the system are trained by minimizing a pair-wise ranking loss function over a training set using stochastic gradient descent (SGD).
