Title: An Introduction to Natural Language Processing
Abstract: Natural language processing (NLP) has made tremendous progress in recent years, finding useful application in many fields and establishing itself as one of the most successful areas of AI. In this lecture, we provide an introduction to NLP suitable for STEM students and early entrants to the field. We begin with an overview of NLP and its main tasks; we then move on to describe document vectors and word embeddings; and we conclude with an accessible presentation of deep NLP models, including transformers, BERT and GPT. We hope to whet the audience’s appetite for more.
