Practical Tips and Tricks for Successful Transfer Learning (Partner Event)

This is a partner event with our friends at the Bay Area NLP Meetup For a link to the event: RSVP at https://www.meetup.com/Bay-Area-NLP/events/271843560/ Summary: How do you train a model on small amounts of data on complex tasks such as question answering or medical relation extraction? One area of research that tackles this is transfer learning, which focuses on training models to learn knowledge and skills from other related tasks that will transfer and boost performance on tasks of interest. However, what does transfer learning look like in practice? This talk will go over practical tips and tricks for setting up transfer learning experiments, as well as hard-learned lessons of understanding which tasks will transfer well to others.
