Bag of Words In its simplest form, BOW is a list of distinct words in a document and a word count for each word. BOW is a simple model to represent text as a numerical structure. Consider the term “document” to be any text you can access regardless of the format, from text in a word document to just a standalone string variable. I leave it up to you to extract the text from whatever format you are working with.
