Text classification for online conversations with machine learning on AWS

Online conversations are ubiquitous in modern life, spanning industries from video games to telecommunications. This has led to an exponential growth in the amount of online conversation data, which has helped in the development of state-of-the-art natural language processing (NLP) systems like chatbots and natural language generation (NLG) models. Over time, various NLP techniques for […]

Hyperparameter optimization for fine-tuning pre-trained transformer models from Hugging Face

Large attention-based transformer models have obtained massive gains on natural language processing (NLP). However, training these gigantic networks from scratch requires a tremendous amount of data and compute. For smaller NLP datasets, a simple yet effective strategy is to use a pre-trained transformer, usually trained in an unsupervised fashion on very large datasets, and fine-tune […]
