The EMNLP conference took place in Copenhagen in September 2017. In this blog post I share some observations that I made during the conference. These included subword-level models, multilingual NLP, language grounding, and inspiration from children.
August 7-12, the 54th conference of the Association of Computational Linguistics (ACL) took place at the Humboldt University in Berlin. This blog post contains a write-up of some of my favourite presentations during the conference.
On August 11th, the first workshop on Representation Learning For NLP took place in conjunction with ACL 2016 at Humboldt University in Berlin. The workshop was extremely popular, and the talks were moved to the largest auditorium to fit all visitors.
This blog post was inspired by the tutorial on neural machine translation on ACL 2016 in Berlin by Christopher Manning, Minh-Thang Luong, and Kyunghyun Cho. It intends to shed light on some of the recent research activities related to neural machine translation, and give some pointers on where to read more.
