Practical Natural Language Processing

Practical Natural Language Processing

Author: Anuj Gupta, Bodhisattwa Majumder, Sowmya Vajjala, Harshit Surana Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/06/2020

If you want to build, iterate and scale NLP systems in a business setting and to tailor them for various industry verticals, this is your guide. Consider the task of building a chatbot or text classification system at your organization. In the beginning, there may be little or no data to work with. At this point, a basic solution that uses rule based systems or traditional machine learning will be apt. As you accumulate more data, more sophisticated--and often data intensive--ML techniques can be used including deep learning. At each step of this journey, there are dozens of alternative approaches you can take. This book helps you navigate this maze of options.

Revised for TensorFlow 2.x, this edition introduces you to the practical side of deep learning with new chapters on unsupervised learning using mutual information, object detection (SSD), and semantic segmentation (FCN and PSPNet), further allowing you to create your own cutting-edge AI projects. Using Keras as an open-source deep learning library, the book features hands-on projects that show you how to create more effective AI with the most up-to-date techniques. Starting with an overview of multi-layer perceptrons (MLPs), convolutional neural networks (CNNs), and recurrent neural networks (RNNs), the book then introduces more cutting-edge techniques as you explore deep neural network architectures, including ResNet and DenseNet, and how to create autoencoders. You will then learn about GANs, and how they can unlock new levels of AI performance. Next, you'll discover how a variational autoencoder (VAE) is implemented, and how GANs and VAEs have the generative power to synthesize data that can be extremely convincing to humans. You'll also learn to implement DRL such as Deep Q-Learning and Policy Gradient Methods, which are critical to many modern results in AI.

Linguistic Fundamentals for Natural Language Processing II

Linguistic Fundamentals for Natural Language Processing II

Author: Emily M. Bender, Alex Lascarides Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/12/2019

Meaning is a fundamental concept in Natural Language Processing (NLP), in the tasks of both Natural Language Understanding (NLU) and Natural Language Generation (NLG).This is because the aims of these fields are to build systems that understand what people mean when they speak or write, and that can produce linguistic strings that successfully express to people the intended content. In order for NLP to scale beyond partial, task-specific solutions, researchers in these fields must be informed by what is known about how humans use language to express and understand communicative intents. The purpose of this book is to present a selection of useful information about semantics and pragmatics, as understood in linguistics, in a way that's accessible to and useful for NLP practitioners with minimal (or even no) prior training in linguistics.
