6th September 2017: Matthias Gallé will give a course: Unsupervised Representations of Words 

Abstract: One of the recent developments with most impact in natural language processing applications is the way that words are represented. Learning those features not only avoids the laborious and application-dependent feature engineering, but it also allows for a smooth integration with deep learning frameworks that are revolutionizing the area since 2014. In this tutorial we will see the study in depth those representation of words. A particular emphasis will be on "understanding by doing", and the attendants will implement the algorithms presented, mostly from scratch without the use of high-level toolkit in order to have a better understand of how those algorithms work.
