An introduction to RNNs, and why they are particularly useful for NLP problems. Including some use examples, as well as some up-skilling tips
A look at acoustic modelling techniques used in speech recognition and how the adoption of deep neural networks have led to a breakthrough in accuracy results. New challenges faced by speech recognition for kids and how deep neural networks can be used to maintain high accuracy in these new conditions.
The diachronic analysis of language studies the language evolution over time. An introduce some methods for the diachronic analysis that rely on Distributional Semantic Models built over Google Ngram.
