Resolving Dates with NLP

In newspaper articles, emails, and other texts, it is natural to reference dates in relation to the publication date. For example, you will commonly see phrases like “yesterday” and “two weeks ago.” However, if you read an article a year after it was published, these timeframes are not immediately clear. […]

State-of-the-art NLP made easy with AdaptNLP

Natural Language Processing (NLP) has advanced significantly since 2018, when ULMFiT and Google’s release of the BERT language model approached human-level performance on a range of use cases. Since then, several models, such as XLM, GPT-2, XLNet, and ALBERT, have been released in quick succession, each improving on its predecessors. While these state-of-the-art models can solve human-level, language-based […]

Meet NovettaNLP: where AdaptNLP was born

A Powerful, Transformers-Based Framework for End-to-End Natural Language Processing Tasks BERT’s release in November 2018 marked an inflection point for Natural Language Processing (NLP), moving us closer to human-level performance on a range of use cases. Since then, many transformer-based language models, such as XLM, GPT-2, XLNet, and roBERTa, have been released, with each […]
