Trends in Natural Language Processing with Sameer Singh

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

Today we continue the 2020 AI Rewind series, joined by friend of the show Sameer Singh, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at UC Irvine.

We last spoke with Sameer at our Natural Language Processing office hours back at TWIMLfest, and was the perfect person to help us break down 2020 in NLP. Sameer tackles the review in 4 main categories, Massive Language Modeling, Fundamental Problems with Language Models, Practical Vulnerabilities with Language Models, and Evaluation.

We also explore the impact of GPT-3 and Transformer models, the intersection of vision and language models, and the injection of causal thinking and modeling into language models, and much more.

We want to hear from you! Send your thoughts on the year that was 2020 below in the comments, or via Twitter at @samcharrington or @twimlai.

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.
