Seminar on language technologies: deep learning (2018)


(For the January 2019 edition please check here )






Deep Learning for Natural Language Processing
    Course open to anyone, see details and pre-requisite information below.
    Deep Learning neural network models have been successfully applied to natural language processing, and are now changing radically how we interact with machines (Siri, Amazon Alexa, Google Home, Skype translator, Google Translate, or the Google search engine). These models are able to infer a continuous representation for words and sentences, instead of using hand-engineered features as in other machine learning approaches. The seminar will introduce the main deep learning models used in natural language processing, allowing the attendees to gain hands-on understanding and implementation of them in Tensorflow.
