It has been a while… I hope you’re doing well in these crazy and strange times.
COVID-19 has affected each of us in unpredictable ways 😷. I’m fortunate to be healthy but my energy has been lower overall ⚡️. Coupled with life and work keeping me busy, this has left less time for writing a newsletter 😩.
There are so many things that happened over the last months. For this edition, I’ve focused on a) resources that help you get started with NLP in general and low-resource NLP in particular; and b) musings on two important recent topics: What a language model can learn and how the next generation of NLP benchmarks will look like.
The next newsletter (which should come out in a more timely fashion once I’ve caught up on my reading list backlog 😅) will cover the most interesting papers from ACL 2020, EMNLP 2020 papers, and submissions to ICLR 2021.
I really appreciate your feedback, so let me know what you love ❤️ and hate 💔 about this edition. Simply hit reply on the issue.
