Natural Language Processing (NLP) presents a significant challenge within computational linguistics due to the intricate grammatical structures, intricate morphologies, and orthographic ambiguities found in numerous languages. These diverse linguistic characteristics amplify the complexity of NLP tasks, necessitating the development of robust methodologies. We need to think about innovative methods that can deal with the linguistic complexity.
Deep learning techniques have demonstrated remarkable performance across a wide array of NLP tasks. Deep Learning for Natural Language Processing workshop aims to explore the recent advancements in deep learning architectures and techniques that can be used to resolve the complexity of language phenomena encountered in various NLP applications such as machine translation, sentiment analysis, chatbots, and more.
This workshop serves as a platform for researchers and practitioners actively involved in the development of NLP applications. Participants will have the opportunity to present and discuss the recent fundamental and applied research works, providing novel solutions to emerging challenges in different NLP fields.
