Members can see a recording of the webinar below once logged in.
Tim discussed the current state of the art in NLP, which is BERT. BERT considers sentences as ordered sequences rather than simply as bags of words, allowing it to handle advanced tasks such as machine translation. Tim will discuss the principles on which BERT operates and demonstrate a practical application to document classification, identifying ESG controversies in news stories.
There was a moderated Q&A session after a short presentation on each main topic.
