Beta version 0.03 (Released May 20th, 2010)
The High Dimensional Explorer is a piece of software that can process a corpus of text and create word vectors that contain co-occurrence information for all the words in the corpus. It allows the user to build and analyze many variations of the HAL model. It has some features that make it very useful for measuring the similarity of words in terms of their contexts. In particular, it can hand very large corpora (over 22 billion words in size) and very large word vectors. It also takes advantage of multiple CPUs or cores to speed up processing.

What is ithe current version of HiDEx?
In May 2010, a new version of HiDEx was released. It does not contain any new features, but it does contain fixes of all known bugs, and supports upper and lowercase word lists. This new version, v0.03, is the version you can download below.
Some key points from the User Manual to think about before downloading:
Before using HiDEx, there is some other software that you might want to obtain:
HiDEx needs some data to work on before it can produce measurements. We strongly reccomend using HiDEx to process a corpus, but there is a way to begin using HiDEx without a corpus.
