Semantic relatedness is a critical measure for a wide variety of applications nowadays. Numerous models, including path-based, have been proposed for this task with great success in many applications during the last few years. Among these applications, many of them require computing semantic relatedness between hundreds of pairs of items as part of their regular input. This scenario demands a computationally efficient model to process hundreds of queries in short time spans. Unfortunately, Path-based models are computationally challenging, creating large bottlenecks when facing these circumstances. Current approaches for reducing this computation have focused on limiting the number of paths to consider between entities.
