Look inside
In this liveProject you’ll develop a chatbot that can answer its user’s questions, using the Hugging Face NLP library. Your challenges will include building the task with DistilBERT transformer, and experimenting with other transformer models to improve your results. Once you’ve built an accurate NLP model, you’ll develop a Telegram bot and integrate it with your Question Answer task.
