Tutorial: Text Classification using GPT2 and Pytorch

💻 Code | 📔 Slides | 📺 Recording

📆 april 09, 2021 | Zoom

  • Text classification is a very common problem that needs solving when dealing with text data.
  • We’ve all seen and know how to use Encoder Transformer models like Bert and RoBerta for text classification but did you know you can use a Decoder Transformer model like GPT2 for text classification?
  • In this tutorial, I will walk you through on how to use GPT2 from HuggingFace for text classification.
  • We will start with downloading customized dataset, installing required componments, selecting pre-trained models, and then train the model. we will finally evaluate the results and how to optimize further.

Duration: 1 Hour 45 Minutes

Find New Sentiments in Text Data

💻 Code | 📔 Slides

📆 march 3, 2020 | University of North Texas DP F223

  • Using text embedding and clustering methods to find new sentiments in text data.
  • Use imdb movie reviews dataset and see how positive-negative sentiments can be used to find other sentiments.
  • Use Tensorflow 2, Word Embeddings, Contextual Embeddings.
  • We'll do clustering and find best number of cluster in data we don't know anything about.
  • We'll do pretty plots to interpret results!
  • We'll do all this on our UNT Talon Supercomputer!

Duration: 1 Hour 15 Minutes

Intro to Word Embeddings - NLP Tools on Talon

💻 Info | 📔 Slides

📆 may 2, 2019 | University of North Texas DP F223

  • Natural Language Processing on Talon HPC
  • Ever wondered or curious about natural language processing? How do you load a text file, how do you 'clean' it, how do you make use of it? We will learn all that and at the end you will build a Neural Network model that can predict a sentiment of a Movie Review. All this on Talon!

Duration: 1 Hour 15 Minutes


Using Python and Jupyter Notebooks on Talon

💻 Info | 📔 Slides

📆 may 1, 2019 | University of North Texas DP F223

  • Hands on work on Talon UNT HPC
  • This workshop will go over some basic instruction about Python and Jupyter Notebooks.
