Deep learning for natural language processing PDF download
Deep learning for natural language processing begins by highlighting the fundamental building blocks of the natural language processing domain. The book then presents the problems you can solve using state-of-the-art neural network models. After that, diving into the different neural network architectures and their specific application areas will help you understand how to choose the best model for your needs. As you work through this deep learning book, you will explore convolutional, recurrent, and recursive neural networks, in addition to long short-term memory networks (LSTM). Understanding these networks will help you implement their models with Keras. In later chapters, you will be able to develop a trigger word recognition application using NLP techniques such as the attention model and ray search.
What you will learn
- Understand various pre-processing techniques for deep learning problems
- Build a vector representation of text using word2vec and GloVe
- Create a named entity recognizer and parts-of-speech tagger with Apache OpenNLP
- Build a machine translation model in Keras
- Develop a text generation application using LSTM
- Build a trigger word detection application using an attention model
