Look inside

In this liveProject, you’ll use transformer-based deep learning models to predict the tag of Reddit subreddits to help your company understand what its customers are saying about them. Transformers are the state of the art, large-scale deep language models pretrained on a huge corpus of text, and are capable of understanding the complexity of grammar really well. You’ll train this model on your own data set, and tune its hyperparameters for the best results.

This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.

book resources

When you start your liveProject, you get full access to the following books for 90 days.
