Neural Networks for Natural Language Processing

Neural Networks for Natural Language Processing

Author: Sumathi S Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/11/2019

Information in today's advancing world is rapidly expanding and becoming widely available. This eruption of data has made handling it a daunting and time-consuming task. Natural language processing (NLP) is a method that applies linguistics and algorithms to large amounts of this data to make it more valuable. NLP improves the interaction between humans and computers, yet there remains a lack of research that focuses on the practical implementations of this trending approach. Neural Networks for Natural Language Processing is a collection of innovative research on the methods and applications of linguistic information processing and its computational properties. This publication will support readers with performing sentence classification and language generation using neural networks, apply deep learning models to solve machine translation and conversation problems, and apply deep structured semantic models on information retrieval and natural language applications. While highlighting topics including deep learning, query entity recognition, and information retrieval, this book is ideally designed for research and development professionals, IT specialists, industrialists, technology developers, data analysts, data scientists, academics, researchers, and students seeking current research on the fundamental concepts and techniques of natural language processing.

Joint Training for Neural Machine Translation

Joint Training for Neural Machine Translation

Author: Yong Cheng Format: Hardback Release Date: 06/09/2019

This book presents four approaches to jointly training bidirectional neural machine translation (NMT) models. First, in order to improve the accuracy of the attention mechanism, it proposes an agreement-based joint training approach to help the two complementary models agree on word alignment matrices for the same training data. Second, it presents a semi-supervised approach that uses an autoencoder to reconstruct monolingual corpora, so as to incorporate these corpora into neural machine translation. It then introduces a joint training algorithm for pivot-based neural machine translation, which can be used to mitigate the data scarcity problem. Lastly it describes an end-to-end bidirectional NMT model to connect the source-to-target and target-to-source translation models, allowing the interaction of parameters between these two directional models.

Cross-Lingual Word Embeddings

Cross-Lingual Word Embeddings

Author: Anders Sogaard, Ivan Vulic, Sebastian Ruder, Manaal Faruqui Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/05/2019

The majority of natural language processing (NLP) is English language processing, and while there is good language technology support for (standard varieties of) English, support for Albanian, Burmese, or Cebuano-and most other languages-remains limited.Being able to bridge this digital divide is important for scientific and democratic reasons but also represents an enormous growth potential. A key challenge for this to happen is learning to align basic meaning-bearing units of different languages. In this book, the authors survey and discuss recent and historical work on supervised and unsupervised learning of such alignments. Specifically, the book focuses on so-called cross-lingual word embeddings. The survey is intended to be systematic, using consistent notation and putting the available methods on comparable form, making it easy to compare wildly different approaches. In so doing, the authors establish previously unreported relations between these methods and are able to present a fast-growing literature in a very compact way. Furthermore, the authors discuss how best to evaluate cross-lingual word embedding methods and survey the resources available for students and researchers interested in this topic.
