📌 lecturers will show you some interesting tricks with GPT2, XLNet, and other models;

📌 the workshop will be in interactive form with practical tasks that you will perform in Google Colab with the lecturer’s help;

📌 together we will consider the main approaches to text generation;

📌 we will understand how the results produced by different models differ;

📌 we will visualize the results for better understanding;

📌 we will collect own pipeline from pre-prepared components and dataset to generate text;

📌 As a result, each participant will have his/her own unique result and interesting experience.

 

The most creative participants will receive small prizes.
