**NEW LOCATION! Meet us at H Bar on Queen St. West**
Arun Raja will be presenting “BERT: Pre-training of Deep Bidirectional Transformers for Language Understanding” by Jacob Devlin, et al.
Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers or BERT is a new language representation model created by scientists at Google AI. The X-factor of BERT is applying the concept of bidirectional training to preserve context from and left and right to language modelling which makes it the state-of-the-art language model.
