How machines use and understand human language? This was an IVADO workshop held by Alexandre Nguyen, Manager, Artificial Intelligence.
Alexandre Nguyen, Manager, Artificial Intelligence at Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton and a graduate of MILA (Montréal Institute of Learning Algorithms) was invited to present a workshop on natural language processing (NLP), as part of an event organized by the Institute for Data Valorization. The training provided participants with insight into how machines use and understand human language.
Several other workshops were presented during this training week from May 14 to 19, 2018, including an introduction to new technologies in finance, deep learnings and reinforcement learning. The purpose of this event was to bridge the gap between university expertise and corporate needs by helping finance and insurance sector stakeholders resolve tangible artificial intelligence problems through practical workshops.
Mr. Nguyen was in the company of leaders in the field, including Manuel Morales, Researcher Emeritus at Université de Montréal and recently appointed Chief Scientist, Artificial Intelligence at the National Bank of Canada, who was the originator of this topical workshop.
