About this event

Natural Language Processing Symposium

September 15 & 16, 2020

10:00 am - 1:45 pm EST

To be held virtually

The Vector Institute is hosting a Natural Language Processing (NLP) Symposium showcasing the NLP project with academic-industry collaborators to facilitate interaction between our industry sponsors, researchers, students and faculty members.

In June 2019, Vector Institute launched a multi-phase industry-academic collaborative project focusing on recent advances in NLP. Participants replicated a state-of-the-art NLP model called BERT and fine tuned a transfer learning approach to optimize domain-specific tasks in areas such as health, law and finance.

To follow-up on the outcomes of the project, a two-day symposium will be held featuring presentations and hands-on workshops, delivered by the project participants and Vector researchers.

The symposium will support knowledge transfer and provide an exclusive opportunity for Vector’s industry sponsors to engage with talent in the NLP domain.
