Two-day workshop on Natural Language Processing

The workshop started with an introduction to Transformers and pre-trained language models, followed by a hands-on coding session. We then had talks on personalized longitudinal NLP, active learning in NLP, multilingual machine translation with hyper-adapters, context-aware machine translation evaluation, the dangers of large language models, privacy preservation in NLP, multilingual and low-resource models, fact checking, language modelling for programming languages, modeling how the brain creates language, the linguistic aspect of resources, and dialectal variation.
