Transfer Learning in Natural Language Processing (NLP) - PyCon SG 2019

Published on: Monday, 11 November 2019

Speaker: Liling Tan, Research Scientist

The 'transfer learning' hype has transcended from the computer vision domain to natural language processing. This is made ever popular by the wave of language models, named after 'sesame street', ELMO, BERT, ERNIE, OSCAR, etc. This talk will cover the (i) basic understanding of language modeling, (ii) glossing over state-of-art neural net architectures for transfer learning and (iii) introducing the a transfer learning library based on PyTorch.
