Deep Learning and NLP

The LAB group have seen several successes recently in deep learning and natural language processing. Olof Mogren’s work on named entity recognition using character-based LSTMs was recently accepted for publication at the Biomedical Text Mining workshop at Coling, BIOTXTM. Soon after, a paper on word sense disambiguation using LSTMs by Mikael Kågebäck and Hans Salomonsson was accepted to the workshop Cognitive Aspects of the Lexicon, CogALex. Mikael Kågebäck and Emilio Jorge’s work on inventing and learning languages by playing games will be presented at a NIPS workshop. Additionally, the work on causality by Fredrik Johansson and collaborators will be featured on the Deep Learning Symposium at NIPS 2016.
