Deep Learning for NLP: From the Trenches with Charlene Chambliss

800 800 The TWIML AI Podcast (formerly This Week in Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence)

Today we’re joined by Charlene Chambliss, Machine Learning Engineer at Primer AI.

Charlene, who we also had the pleasure of hosting at NLP Office Hours during TWIMLfest, is back to share some of the work she’s been doing with deep learning and NLP. In our conversation, we explore her experiences working with newer NLP models and tools like BERT and HuggingFace, as well as whats she’s learned along the way with word embeddings, labeling tasks, debugging, and more. We also focus on a few of her projects, like her popular multi-lingual BERT project, and a COVID-19 classifier. Finally, Charlene shares her experience getting into data science and machine learning coming from a non-technical background, and what the transition was like, and tips for people looking to make a similar shift.

At the end of the day, real-world machine learning is all about the data. You already know this, but manually cleaning and transforming data can be exhausting, inconsistent, and error-prone, and is not the path towards getting your models into production, especially when your data, models, and code are constantly changing.

This is where Pachyderm can help. Pachyderm is an easy-to-use data science platform that lets you productionalize your machine learning tasks into fully-automated, end-to-end workflows, regardless of language or framework. Pachyderm provides Git-like data versioning and lineage that lets you automatically track every data change and final output result.

Right now, TWIML listeners can enjoy 20% off of Pachyderm Hub and build production-grade data science workflows in minutes, without ever having to configure a single piece of infrastructure.

Imagine being able to automate your entire data science workflow and reproduce any result from any point in time — in seconds, and with complete confidence.
