========
Abstract:
Deep learning-based NLP technologies like BERT (Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers) have recently made headlines for showing significant improvements in areas such as semantic understanding when contrasted with prior NLP techniques. However, exploiting the power of BERT in search and recommender systems is a non-trivial task, due to the heavy computation cost of BERT models.

To provide a unified technical solution, we developed DeText, a state-of-the-art open source NLP framework for text understanding. In this talk, we will introduce DeText, with live demo. We will discuss:
* Overview on DeText
* Technical architect and design of DeText
* Illustrate how neural ranking is designed and developed in DeText
* Live demo
