[en] The ability to monitor the evolution of topics over time is extremely valuable for businesses.
Currently, all existing topic tracking methods use lexical information by matching word usage.
However, no studies has ever experimented with the use of semantic information for tracking topics.
Hence, we explore a novel semantic-based method using word embeddings.
Our results show that a semantic-based approach to topic tracking is on par with the lexical approach but makes different mistakes.
This suggest that both methods may complement each other.
