H20.ai x DSSG: AutoML Best Practices and Transfer Learning for Multilingual Data

7:00pm - 8.15pm: Speaker presentation
8:15pm - end: Q&A

We come across many languages while working in APAC region, and multilingual NLP is key to extract unified insights out of multilingual data. While working with text data in English is challenging, building and applying NLP models for multiple languages adds to the complexity of this task.

In this talk, we will introduce the approach developed by Kaggle Grandmasters at H2O.ai to leverage multilingual transformer based models and transfer learning to solve NLP for multilingual data. We will also conduct a hands-on session using H2O’s Hybrid AI Cloud, which will cover -
1. AutoML Best Practices
2. NLP Best Practices
3. Expert settings for multilingual NLP and transfer learning

Needs a location

Hi everyone. Yes, we've heard your complaints about people rsvping and not showing up, and how there's space at the venue but no more rsvp slots. To resolve this, we seek your help with taking attendence at the events:

- For members who RSVP and no-show, they will receive -1 point. (RSVPs close 48 hrs before the event--please cancel your rsvp before this)
- For members who RSVP and show, they will receive +1 point.
- E.g., Bill RSVPs for 3 meetups. He shows up for only 1. Thus, he gets (-1) + (-1) + (+1) = -1 point.
- Members who have < -3 points will be banned.
- Members who have > 10 points will get VIP and can attend meetups without RSVP for a year
- Please approach our committee members to take your attendance. Thank you!
