About The Book

Explore the most challenging issues of natural language processing, and learn how to solve them with cutting-edge deep learning!

Inside Deep Learning for Natural Language Processing you’ll find a wealth of NLP insights, including:

An overview of NLP and deep learning
One-hot text representations
Word embeddings
Models for textual similarity
Sequential NLP
Semantic role labeling
Deep memory-based NLP
Linguistic structure
Hyperparameters for deep NLP

Deep learning has advanced natural language processing to exciting new levels and powerful new applications! For the first time, computer systems can achieve "human" levels of summarizing, making connections, and other tasks that require comprehension and context. Deep Learning for Natural Language Processing reveals the groundbreaking techniques that make these innovations possible. Stephan Raaijmakers distills his extensive knowledge into useful best practices, real-world applications, and the inner workings of top NLP algorithms.

About the technology
Deep learning has transformed the field of natural language processing. Neural networks recognize not just words and phrases, but also patterns. Models infer meaning from context, and determine emotional tone. Powerful deep learning-based NLP models open up a goldmine of potential uses.

About the book
Deep Learning for Natural Language Processing teaches you how to create advanced NLP applications using Python and the Keras deep learning library. You’ll learn to use state-of the-art tools and techniques including BERT and XLNET, multitask learning, and deep memory-based NLP. Fascinating examples give you hands-on experience with a variety of real world NLP applications. Plus, the detailed code discussions show you exactly how to adapt each example to your own uses!
