William Galindez Arias: Building NLP pipelines for Language Learning Chatbots


Building NLP pipelines for Language Learning Chatbots

This talk focuses in the implementation of state of the art Deep Learning techniques in sequences in order to teach a model how to understand and generate language in Czech, I showcase how open source tools plus fine tuning leveraging Python can create an agent that serves as a training partner in order to learn a language, such as Czech. The building of this solution came after relocating to Prague (I am from Colombia) and finding out that typical language courses fail to address the real life natural language that is created when you interact with locals. In addition, I work as a consultant implementing Chatbots using Microsoft LUIS, and I could see how using my approach can offer a solution for countries where Microsoft cognitive services still do not support the language (such as Czech)
