Machine Learning Seminar #1 - Dimension Reduction in Natural Language Processing
This is the first event in a series of seminars for approaching, understanding and working with Machine learning from different perspectives. These events are not a lectures, but rather discussions, with the aim of learning from each other perspective.
This event will focus on dimension reduction aspects in the field of Natural Language Processing.
We will discuss and explore similarities and differences across varying methodologies - from PCA and LDA to GloVe and FastText - in an attempt to understand better the best uses and limitations of these tools.
