The group will serve both students and professionals to bridge the gap between the analytical sciences and practical applications of industry.
For our November meetup, we are excited to welcome Shubhanshu Mishra, machine learning researcher at Instacart, who will be presenting on contextual language models. Language models are very powerful at understanding complex intents in a text and relating it to world knowledge acquired from their training data. However, they lack in utilizing non textual knowledge better provided by the context in which the text data exists and is generated. In the presentation, Shubhanshu will highlight a series of work done on how we can add spatio temporal and social context to language models to improve the understanding of these models on real world business datasets.
