Here's our December 30, 2020 draft! Includes:
- new version of Chapter 8 (bringing together POS and NER in one chapter),
- new version of Chapter 9 (with Transformers)
- Chapter 11 (MT)
- neural span parsing and CCG parsing moved into Chapter 13 (Constituency Parsing) and Statistical Constituency Parsing moved to Appendix C
- new version of Chapter 23 (QA modernized)
- Chapter 26 (ASR + TTS)
Plus a modernizing pass (and typo fixing, thanks to all of you!!!) on all the other chapters.
We are really grateful to all of you for finding bugs and offering great suggestions!
Individual chapters are below;
here is a single pdf of all the chapters in the December 30, 2020 draft of the book-so-far
As always, typos and comments very welcome (just email firstname.lastname@example.org
and let us know the date on the draft)!
(Due to reorganizing, still expect some missing latex cross-references throughout the pdfs, don't bother reporting those missing ref/typos.)
Feel free to use the draft slides in your classes.
We are in the process of updating the slides now;
so far the slides for Chapters 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 20, and 24 have been updated.
When will the whole book be finished?
We're shooting for well before the end of 2021 for the 3 remaining chapters (Intro, Contextual Embeddings, Semantic Parsing) + random missing sections.
And if you need last year's draft chapters, they are here.
