Description

Today we’re joined by Emily M. Bender, Professor of Linguistics at the University of Washington. 

Our discussion covers a lot of ground, but centers on the question, "Is Linguistics Missing from NLP Research?" We explore if we would be making more progress, on more solid foundations, if more linguists were involved in NLP research, or is the progress we're making (e.g. with deep learning models like Transformers) just fine?

Later this afternoon (3pm PT) we’ll be hosting a viewing party with Emily over on our YouTube channel. Sam and Emily will be in the live chat answering your questions from the conversation. Register at twimlai.com/376viewing!
