About this event
About the event:
Machine learning is becoming an irreplaceable part of our lives - from showing us suggested search results and powering smart speakers to driving cars and launching rockets. A crucial aspect of the AI revolution is its ability to interact with humans naturally and that’s where the Natural Language Processing comes in.
In this talk we’re going to discuss how to get started with deep neural networks and use them for NLP tasks, so yes, this is a beginner-friendly event. However, we’re welcoming the machine learning experts out there as well, because Radostin is going to talk about some advanced best-practices and showcase his recent work in NLP with the platform for processing Bulgarian - АзБуки.ML.
IMPORTANT: If you want to follow the coding demos during the event, prepare a Python 3 environment or make sure you have access to Google Colab.
