Tale of a Neural Network: From Part-Of-Speech to Parsing

Ronan Collobert (NEC Laboratories, and IDIAP)

We will present a single architecture which excels in performance on various Natural Language Processing (NLP) tasks. Instead of hand-crafting task-specific features, generic word representations are _learnt_ from large unlabeled corpuses. We will demonstrate how our architecture naturally applies to a wide range of tasks, from simple tasks like Part-Of-Speech, to complex tasks like Parsing. Analysis and comparison with existing NLP approaches will be given. The presentation will end with the introduction of a simple standalone software, implementing all these tasks with blazing execution speed.
