Tutorial: Methods for Deep Natural Language Processing    

Professor Dragomir Radev

Tutorial Summary: A large number of Natural Language Processing (NLP) problems, including parsing, machine translation, paraphrasing, sequence modeling, question answering, semantic analysis, and dialogue modeling have in recent years been tackled with Deep Neural Network (DNN) methods. I will present (1) an overview of the fundamentals of NLP (including ambiguity resolution, parsing, vector semantics), (2) learning methods (linear classifiers, the perceptron, multi-layed neural     networks), and (3) some recent advancements in DNN for NLP.
