Keyword and vocabulary extraction and generation from corpora is an important area of information retrieval. Applicable to autosuggestions, synonym and term similarity, and natural language understanding, the available techniques are numerous and continuing to advance.

Drawing from research from both acedemia and the field, this talk will give a technical deep dive of existing techniques and libraries and their applications. The audience will learn which areas of research to further focus on to address their use cases, and walk away with an ability to begin implementation in their information retrieval stack.
