The themes of this newsletter are highlights from EMNLP 2019, ethical uses of NLP, and AI and journalism. At EMNLP 2019, BERT and multilingual models showed a strong presence, while there were also some dubious use cases for NLP. One particularly challenging domain for AI is news.
In addition, we have a treasure trove of high-quality talks from three recent ML and NLP summer schools (Deep Learning Indaba, Khipu, AthensNLP), a lot of resources including paper summaries and lecture slides, a new delicious French BERT model, and articles ranging from the state of the NLP literature to overviews of self-supervised learning and dialogue policies.
