About the workshop
NLP is in high demand given the volumes of unstructured and semi-structured content that most enterprises maintain, and given time, the NLP components can play important roles in various enterprise applications such as sentiment analysis, chatbot and knowledge graph. The recent advances in the NLP has increased scores for the major models (BERT, XLNet, ALBERT, etc.) on the widely used NLP benchmarks GLUE, SQuAD, RACE, etc. Several NLP models have already surpassed human baseline performance on the benchmarks. In this presentation we will introduce those new algorithms and describe the ways to apply those technologies in enterprises.
