We have developed a method called skill2vec, which applies big data techniques to automatically analyze the learning data to discover skill relationship, leading to a more objective and datainformed decision making. Skill2vec is a neural network architecture which can transform a skill to a new vector space called embedding. The embedding can facilitate the comparison and visualization of different skills and their relationship. We conducted a pilot experiment using benchmark dataset to demonstrate the effectiveness of our method. Copyright © 2017 ACM.
