Natural Language Processing 2020 [Дискусія]

Leveraging deep learning as a workhorse, NLP is evolving rapidly. There is a popular opinion that the "ImageNet moment" has already arrived. We have invited experts with experience in academia and industry to speak about the latest achievements and challenges in NLP in 2020. We will discuss aspects of applying heavy DL models to solve NLP problems, the issues related to their explainability, and practical usage.

The discussion will be in English.
