You can use the glossaries package. Linked here are a few examples on how to use it.

Here is a MWE on how to get something like what you want, taken and slightly modified from the example site linked, to remove page numbers and change the title of the acronyms section to Abbreviations.





First use:




The line : \loadglsentries[acronym]{myglossaries} merely loads a file (myglossaries.tex) containing your glossary entries formatted like this:

\newacronym[type=\glsdefaulttype]{cbow}{CBOW}{Continuous Bag-Of-Words}
\newacronym[type=\glsdefaulttype]{fema}{FEMA}{Feature Embeddings for domain Adaptation}

You need to provide this .tex file yourself, so you can make your own glossaries file with your own file and entries.

Here is an example of the output:
