Details about Natural language processing with PyTorch
Natural language processing with PyTorch PDF free download – This book aims to bring newcomers to natural language processing (NLP) and deep learning to a tasting table covering important topics in both areas. Both of these subject areas are growing exponentially. As it introduces both deep learning and NLP with an emphasis on implementation, this book occupies an important middle ground. While writing the book, we had to make difficult, and sometimes uncomfortable, choices on what material to leave out. For a beginner reader, we hope the book will provide a strong foundation in the basics and a glimpse of what is possible. Machine learning, and deep learning in particular, is an experiential discipline, as opposed to an intellectual science. The generous end-to-end code examples in each chapter invite you to partake in that experience.
When we began working on the book, we started with PyTorch 0.2. The examples were revised with each PyTorch update from 0.2 to 0.4. PyTorch 1.0 is due to release around when this book comes out. The code examples in the book are PyTorch 0.4–compliant and should work as they are with the upcoming PyTorch 1.0 release. A note regarding the style of the book. We have intentionally avoided mathematics in most places, not because deep learning math is particularly difficult (it is not), but because it is a distraction in many situations from the main goal of this book—to empower the beginner learner. Likewise, in many cases, both in code and text, we have favored exposition over succinctness. Advanced readers and experienced programmers will likely see ways to tighten up the code and so on, but our choice was to be as explicit as possible so as to reach the broadest of the audience that we want to reach.
