ZurichNLP Meetup #8

February 27 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


We are continuing strong in 2024 with Meetup #8 on February 27th! We’re happy to announce the following speakers:

  • Brian DuSell, Postdoc @ ETH Zurich
  • Leandro von Werra, Chief Loss Officer @ Hugging Face

RSVP soon as spots are limited, the last few times we maxed out capacity. Talk details:

Speaker #1: Brian DuSell
Title: Stack Attention: Improving the Ability of Transformers to Model Hierarchical Patterns
Summary: Language contains hierarchical syntactic patterns, but transformers do not have a mechanism for dealing with hierarchies of arbitrary depth. In this talk I will present my work on Stack Attention, a kind of self-attention with a latent model of syntax that addresses this limitation and allows transformers to model any context-free language.

Speaker #2: Leandro von Werra

Title: BigCode: Building LLM’s for Code in an Open and Responsible Way

Hope to see you there!
