Natural Language Processing [Discussion]

Discussion video

Some of the best experts in the world will participate in the NLP discussion: Thomas Wolf and Braden Hancock, whose teams are involved in creating SOTA solutions for various NLP tasks; makes it relatively easy to apply SOTA solutions in the industry. Also in the discussion will be experts from the strongest NLP teams in the industry in Ukraine (YouScan and Grammarly), who are experienced in solving various problems within their products.

The discussion will discuss the latest SOTA models in language modeling, their use to solve other NLP problems; approaches to transfer learning; their use in production; the benefits of multitask learning; data features, markup quality, and self-supervised approaches.
