From Zero To State Of The Art NLP Part II - Transformers

Welcome to part two of the two part series on a crash course into state of the art natural language processing. This part is going to go through the transformer architecture from Attention Is All You Need. If you haven’t done so already, read the first part which introduces attention mechanisms. This post is all about transformers and assumes you know attention mechanisms.

From Zero To State Of The Art NLP Part I - Attention mechanism

Back in November 2018, Google released, which is based on attention mechanisms in Attention Is All You Need. In this two part series, I will assume you know nothing about NLP, have some understanding about neural networks, and take you from the start to end of understanding how transformers work. Natural language processing is the art of using machine learning techniques in processing language. [Read More]
