RUS Edition:
ENG Edition

Dear DeepPavlov community,

According to our tradition, we are glad to announce our next DeepPavlov Community Call #11 which will take place next week, including both the English & Russian Editions.

In the upcoming Community Calls we discuss firstly the new version of DeepPavlov v0.16.0, which will be released soon (early August) , and, of course, we will answer your questions.

Second part of both Community Calls will be dedicated to first Evaluation of our GSoC students, who started works in June: 
  • Anastasiia Sedova will present her first part of work on Relation Extraction: the main goal of the project is to provide the user of DeepPavlov Framework with an out-of-box solution for relation extraction. According to this work the user's input would be a text and a config with RE parameters, and relational triples would be the output. Thus, the whole preprocessing, data encoding and model application would happen inside the module, while the overall relation extraction component remains clear and convenient for the user.
  • Niklas Muennighoff will present his first part of work on TripPy + DeepPavlov: this project implements TripPy in DeepPavlov to allow anybody to build fully functional Dialog Bots on top of TripPy architecture leveraging the DeepPavlov ecosystem. Further, the project includes a simple demo in the form of a WeatherBot as well as a more complex chatbot demo built using the new model in DeepPavlov.
  • Anshuman Singh will present his first part of work on Refactor Multi-Task BERT: multi-task BERT is implemented in Tensorflow which we wanted to be transitioned  to PyTorch as part of our broader transition from TF 1.x to PyTorch. The refactored code also needs to incorporate techniques such as PAL-BERT, CA-MTL within the DeepPavlov library by matching the results of the GLUE benchmark on the respective techniques.

But English & Russian Editions of Community Calls will have small differences: 
  • In Russian version, only Anastasiia Sedova will present her work.
  • In English version, all of our GSoC students will present his works.

As always, we are waiting for your suggestions and hope to see them on Calls!
