Instructors: Dr. Kiran Gunnam, Dr. Koji Seto, Dr. Osso Vahabzadeh

What you will learn / Topics that will be covered:
1. Intuitive Treatment
• Overview of Natural Language Processing and Deep Learning
• Vector representations of Words: word2vec
• Convolutional Neural Network (CNN)
• Recurrent neural networks (RNN)
• Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM) and Gated Recurrent Units (GRU)
• Recursive neural networks
• Deep Reinforcement Learning and Imitation Learning
• Applications: Sentence classification, Language modeling, Memory network, Machine translation
• Dynamic Memory Networks
• Transformer

2. In-depth Treatment
• Machine translation with LSTM and GRU
• Sentiment analysis with Recursive neural networks

3. Hands-on Practice
• Text Classification
• Machine Translation

4. Project
• Speech Recognition

Target Audiences:
Engineers, researchers, practitioners and students who are interested in deep learning and their implementations on GPUs in Natural Language Processing applications. This workshop will particularly benefit people who intend to build Natural Language Processing applications using deep learning techniques on top of a solid understanding of underlying algorithms.

Basic knowledge of Machine Learning, and familiarity with Python and Tensorflow basics

Upon completion of this course, you’ll be able to build Natural Language Processing applications using deep learning techniques to start solving real-world problems such as Language Translation and Question Answering.
